To help ease the blow, here’s some pizza.
Lift your spirits at Five Creeks Tavern, a casual, all-day hangout full of wood-fired pizzas, beer and wine on tap, now open above K.T. Burger in Highland Park Village. (See the menu and the slideshow.)
So that’s essentially what you’re working with. But should you want more details, we have those right here.
The menu’s all Italian in nature.
Think Neapolitan-style pizzas baking in a 900-degree oven, plus housemade pastas, sandwiches and meatballs.
It’s comfortable inside.
At the top of the stairs, turn right for a dimly lit lounge with a square bar, TVs and black leather chairs. To your left: the dining room with its wood tables, booths and paintings of Sinatra and the Boss.
You’ve got two bars to choose from.
You can’t go wrong, provided you like cold beer and wine on tap. So... you can’t go wrong.
Also, two patios.
One’s covered, one’s not. The latter is sporting a fireplace, which will come in handy someday.
Try the Bellini.
They’re using the recipe from Harry’s Bar in Venice, where the drink originated.
No charge for the trivia.
