The Promontory has brought a bright and bustling gathering place to the Hyde Park community and you'll easily lose track of time while listening to the DJ-curated groovy tunes. Under lofty ceilings trimmed with black iron beams and sleek wood accents, urbanites sip hand-crafted cocktails around a central bar. A white-hot fire blazes away in the open kitchen, providing the "hearth to table" food trumpeted on the menu. Banish bad memories of soggy lunchboxes and go for the fried bologna sandwich, with thick slices of house-cured bologna crisped on the griddle, then paired with tart sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese and folded into marble rye. Banana-nut bread with whipped cream, caramelized banana slices and loads of syrup makes for a nice dessert.
