My favorite local restaurant in my South River North/North Loop ‘hood is not one I would recommend to my worst enemy. Well, depending on the day you ask me my opinion on the place. Because while Emerald Loop’s Irish pub kitchen shines from Monday through Friday, it’s as if the back-of-house is taken over by zombies on the weekend.
Find out why a rare burger at Emerald Loop can be a bloody weekend surprise in my latest Gapers Block: Drive-Thru review, Emerald Loop: It’s Not Easy Being Green. And then someone please find me a weekend hoodie.
