Standard Market Grill just opened, and the food is delicious—plus, they have a full bar, and they'd love to have us. They are at the corner of Fullerton and Clark - easily accessible by bus and a short walk from the Fullerton El stop.
You can check out the menu here: http://www.standardmarketgrill.com/
Here's how it works: You walk in and place your order at the counter. They give you a nifty numbered doodad. When your food is ready, your server brings it out to you; s/he can also take orders for more food and drinks. (I'm not sure how the lighting is in there after dark, so you might want to bring a light-colored project for this first go-round in the new location.)
Hope to see you there!
As always, we will be collecting the $1 meetup fee, and we ask as a courtesy to our venues that you order something -- even if it’s just a coffee -- while we use their space.
