Intimate and chic, but hardly pretentious, the folks at Scratch makes you feel at home whether you've dropped in for a drink at the bar or to sample its sublime small plates (which you can also do at the bar). Its location on Fairbanks is just a skip from the nightlife options of Park Ave. and Hannibal Square – ambling over from either will up your evening's romantic vibe, making it feel like a random place you've decided to try after a day exploring a new city. Its wine and beer list are extensive, its wait staff knowledgeable and its seasonally rotating menu a wonderful array of tastes both traditional and exotic – and sometimes an amalgam of the two. Artful plating makes each selection almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
