I love a local brewery! This week, I found myself at Corridor Brewery & Provisions, located at 3446 N Southport. Every time I’ve walked by around dinner time, the patio is full and the inside of the restaurant is bustling with people. We came in for dinner around 8 on a Monday night and had no problem being seated right away. The atmosphere is fantastic, with a huge wooden bar, industrial lighting, and cozy booths and tables. The menu is relatively small, with a few choices for appetizers, sandwiches, pizzas, and salads. I was super tempted by the Shrimp Tostadas topped with mango salsa, chipotle, and lime juice. I decided to save my appetite for the main event and chose the Chopped Salad: mixed lettuces, chicken, smoked pepper bacon, tomato, green peas, croutons, and shaved parmesan, all tossed in a green goddess dressing. This salad was fantastic! The lettuces were fresh and crunchy and I absolutely love peas in a salad. The texture and richness of the smoked bacon really complimented the bright vegetables as well. I would order this again in a heartbeat. My friend decided on the burger: a double steak patty with mustard herb mayo, cheddar, and Detroit pickles on a sesame bun served with fries. This was a great burger. The steak patties were cooked perfectly and I loved the simplicity of the dish. The fries were amazing! They were thick cut, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and seasoned well. Corridor also has a great brunch menu, with a dedicated section of brioche waffles, large plates, omelettes, and more.
Corridor is open Mondays and Tuesdays from 11 am to 11 pm, Wednesdays through Fridays from 11 am to midnight, Saturdays from 10 am to midnight, and Sundays from 10 am to 11 pm.
