The house toast at Del Pedro’s post–Pegu Club watering hole says it all: “Here’s to us! Not to the wankers, ridiculous hipsters, or usurious bankers.” Like the Dil Pickle Club, the Prohibition-era Chicago speakeasy to which it pays tribute, Tooker Alley’s multi-page menu/manifesto is “consciously nobrow, militantly inclusive, and ceaselessly creative.” This last point is hammered home by the maverick bartender’s highly stylized tipples, whether or not your poison of choice is the Hi Falutin' ($12) with whiskey, Swedish punsch, Byrrh, and lemon or the Monk’s Dream ($12), which was once the final step in Tooker’s six-part “History of the Martini” program. The house concoction, featuring London dry gin, sweet vermouth, B&B, orange bitters, and a Curaçao rinse, is creamy without being the least bit cloying.
