435 N. Clark St.

A rebirth of the Richard Melman/Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises Southern barbecue and country music-themed restaurant of the 1990s, the new Bub City is geared more to the younger generation represented by the senior Melman’s three adult children who have gone into the family business. In addition to barbecue, including Carolina-style pulled pork, the rustically designed casual restaurant and whiskey bar features a shellfish bar, Southern pies and emerging country bands on some nights.
