Innovative Chinese cuisine and sophisticated cocktails make this hip Logan Square venue worth seeking out. Inside the dimly lit space, wood-lined walls, sleek banquettes, linen-draped tables, and polished cooper accents play off a palette of rich neutrals to lend a modern, upscale vibe. Friendship's spirited menu offers both traditional cuisine and enticing departures. Fruit juices and liquors enhance items like Barbarian beef with a chili-cabernet sauce. Then, Champagne lemon chicken, XO brandy beef chow fun, and sizzling Xi'an pork with a red chili-and-black bean sauce all boast salty, sweet, and spicy notes. For a sweet finish, opt for one of the more western-leaning desserts or simply settle for the ultimate coup d'etat-a chocolate fortune cookie.
