Step away from the frenetic shopping, mouth agog window gazing, crabby cabbies and general urban cacophony on the Mag Mile and tuck into a cushy booth at Beacon Tavern. Just off Michigan Ave. on the Wrigley Building walkway, it's a casually-upscale refuge with modern interpretations of tavern classics reminding us that civilization can still be comforting. Launch lunch or dinner with briny oysters or a wonderful rendition of shrimp toast consisting of red shrimp atop brioche that lolls in truffle butter with the crunchy fried heads on the side. Cheddar Bay biscuits are baked to order but save belly space for excellent entrees like rabbit stew, fish 'n' chips, a half-pound green chile cheeseburger, Scottish salmon, roast chicken or bouillabaisse for two.
