Located on South Michigan Avenue near Millennium Park, The Gage (24 S. Michigan, 312/372-4243) is the perfect place to go for some fine dining, or tasty appetizers and drinks.  It is run by the Lawless family who has been in the hospitality industry since 1977.  They are originally from Galway, Ireland where they owned several renowned bars, restaurants and hotels.
A favorite dish among visitors is Today’s Fish and Chips which includes a Guinness battered-fish with malt tartar sauce and lemon.  If you just want to stop in for lunch, try one of the specialty sandwiches such as the Gage Venison Burger which comes with smoked Gouda, fried jalapeño, woodland mushroom, pickled onion and mustard aioli.   
Enjoy a delightful and light appetizer like the House Smoked Rainbow Trout or the Spring Pea Soup. With that, order a local craft beer such as The Two Brothers Cane & Ebel or the Jameson Black Barrel Irish Whiskey.
