Coffee. Toast. Whiskey. Beer.

Those are the four things that the people at Little Toasted do very well. And those are the things you’re about to experience a great deal more of now that the new all-day bar is open in Riverside Plaza. Check it out.

We will now address those things in that exact order.

First, the coffee. It’s from Groundswell and you can have as much as you want all day, every day for $79 a month. Moving on...

To the toast. It’s not just fancy toast, it’s things like extra-fancy strawberries and cream toast with rose-whipped ricotta and mint dust.

And ah yes, whiskey. The v-shaped, concrete bar will cater nicely to you and your after-work crowd with bottles upon bottles of amber liquid displayed on polished wooden shelves. Take a seat under the copper light fixtures for a Sex and Caffeine, which combines 10-year single-barrel with nitro coffee. It’ll definitely get you in the mood for the cheese and potato-filled wontons drizzled with Aleppo honey.

Or wait until the dining room and patio open up next month, where you can enjoy a Maplewood Pulaski Pils alongside house-smoked chicken with black truffles and views of the Chicago River.

Yes, that was the beer part.

Sarah Freeman is often accused of hiding secrets in her hair. She can make any cocktail, as long as that cocktail is a rye Old Fashioned, and has never met a saison she didn’t like.
