Flatwater Chicago Reviews
Great Location. Aug 14, 2009
The night at Flatwater for me started about a half-hour before the TravBuddy meetup was to start. I stood on the Clark Street Bridge watching boats, but mainly listening to the fine jazz band across the river play.
There was a large group of us for the meet-up, so we had a long table that was pushed off into the far to one side. It was at times a tight squeeze, and probably not conducive to the number of people we had there.
I ordered a spinach salad. You pay for the location here a bit. As is the case with everything else I've reviewed in Chicago, a big city premium applies to this restaurant. My spinach salad was pretty good. It had some tomatoes, which I do not like and had to pick off one-by-one, and some bacon. It was topped with a poached egg. Very well done, very tasty, nice combination of tastes and textures.
As it was a Friday night things got pretty crowded. Some people were just there to be at the bar and drink, and some were there to eat. Boaters came up and tied their boats up nearby and climbed up into the area to eat or drink. A great atmosphere and a great time, especially if the weather cooperates. It can also be a good starting point if you want to go to another nearby establishment.
