Boys­town Bests

Where Chicago - - WHERE NOW -

Steve Grand knows his way around the gay-bor­hood (he worked there for years be­fore find­ing fame). Here, his fab faves.

SIDE­TRACK

“If I had to vol­un­tar­ily go back into a bar, it would be Side­track, I think it’s a great place,” Grand says. Then adds, “And they have Woof Wed­nes­days! [A monthly party where guests are en­cour­aged to wear leather.]” 3349 N. Hal­sted St., 773.477.9189, side­trackchicago.com

MEL­ROSE RESTAU­RANT

“The food is re­ally cheap and re­ally good. The flank steak is al­ways juicy and ten­der,” says Grand. 3323 N. Broad­way St., 773.327.2060, mel­rosedin­er­chicago.com

EGO­IST

“I’m a big fan of Speedos,” ad­mits Grand. “I have to go in there and try on a mil­lion things and spend way too much money.” 3526 N. Hal­sted St., 773.281.5121, ego­is­tun­der­wear.com
