At the first buzz of bumble bees, songbirds' melodies and the Cubs and Sox hitting 'em out of the park, homo sapiens emerge from the nest and onto outdoor patios. Tavern on Rush, on the corner of Rush and Bellevue Place, is a perfect perch to people watch while dining and drinking on the 114-seat outdoor patio cafe day to well into the night. Lunch, dinner and weekend brunch menus are available from 11 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to midnight Saturday and Sunday. Passers-by will surely eye your prime steak, chops, fresh seafood, burger or pizza. Portions are generous and service is stellar. Executive Chef John Gatsos offers new dishes four times a year and spring brings lush Burrata Prosciutto Crostini with roasted sweet vine-ripened tomatoes; earthy Mediterranean Lamb Flatbread; and Spaghetti Chitarra with crispy pork cheeks, fava beans, spring peas, cherry tomato, Parmesan cheese and basil-EVOO.
