“An old-world drinking & dining experience”
Nestled in the heart of the Ravenswood, Lincoln Square and North Center neighborhoods, Fountainhead offers an “old world” yet innovative drinking and dining experience in the northwest Lakeview area. Its high-quality, inventive menu is designed to complement a comprehensive yet distinctive selection of beers, wines, whiskys and spirits. Special emphasis on local and regional distilleries, craft beers and a fine selection of artisanal foods appeal to discriminating connoisseurs. Our fully landscaped rooftop garden opened last summer to rave reviews. We have now closed it for the winter, but we hope to reopen at the first signs of Spring. Décor in the form of handcrafted mahogany woodwork and a seating alcove with a fireplace reflects a comfortable, old world theme. The unique, asymmetrical bar creates seating areas with individual ambiences. Fountainhead’s Barrel Room is perfect for a small private gathering but will be available for public use when not reserved. The food menu is designed around the beverage list so that customers can count on a well-balanced dining experience no matter the combination of dish and drink. Those less familiar with Fountainhead’s broad beverage menu can rely on an educated, approachable staff to make recommendations. As a featured menu item, Fountainhead offers large shared plates with regionally themed hot and cold fare.
Designed with the beer aficionado in mind, Fountainhead's distinctive beverage list places an emphasis on local and regional breweries like Begyle, Three Floyds and Tyranena. The food menu, overseen by chef Cleetus Friedman, is equally unique, and showcases beer-infused morsels such as Steigl beer-battered pickles ($10) and pub cheese ($9) laced with Stone Pale Ale.
For a killer craft beer list and whiskey selection, look no further than Fountainhead's sun-soaked rooftop garden. While you imbibe, nosh on BBQ pulled pork ($15) and pub cheese with pretzel bread ($9) created by Chef Cleetus Friedman.
