This bistro-sports bar hybrid offers a mismatched nouveau-bar-food menu. Fusion is the m.o. here, in dishes like chocolate Thai ribs, meaty and tender with less chocolate than thick mesquite glaze, or the signature black-truffle-infused Kobe beef burger, musky and fragrant, seeped with sweetness of candied foie gras. The quirky mix continues with old-school lobster macaroni and cheese, crisp and breaded, light throughout, or a pecan-crusted chicken satay—not sweet and grilled, but fried like chicken fingers. Meanwhile, the bar offers fresh-pineapple-infused vodkas and milkshakes in addition to the usual quaffs, and the dessert menu contains such oddities as passion fruit “tomato,” and mint leaf “lettuce” on warm doughnut buns. The space is as mixed as its menu, with backlit leather banquettes, an ornate copper ceiling, and glass lantern accents. These attempts at elegance are upset by five flat-screen TVs, reminding you that despite the black chandeliers, you’re still in a Big Ten–rooting sports bar.

Weekend Lounge

Happy hour draws a mixed after-work crowd, but twenty-and-thirtysomethings rule the downstairs 5 Points Lounge Thursday to Saturday, as D.J.'s spin in this non-exclusive events space 10 p.m.-3 a.m.
