I never went to Roscoe’s and I don’t ever remember hearing about it. Now it’s a digital printing center.
Butera’s. 5019 Montrose. Deli, very casual, with millions of different beers. The place to be seen, but closes early at 8 p.m.
Butera’s had phenomenal sandwiches. My favorite was one with roasted portobella mushroom and red pepper slices. They were still open at least into the early 2000s, but have been closed for several years now.
St. Michel. 2150 Richmond. Jazz, very sophisticated atmosphere.
