The Palomino (2491 S. Superior St.), located on a quiet Bay View street with views of Lake Michigan, is just steps away from Club Garibaldi and G. Groppi Food Market. The bar is classic 1930s style, with Western décor and a motorcycle on display at the front window. The menu is a curious hybrid of vegan meets roadside America. House specials include mac ’n’ cheese, fried chicken and chicken-fried steak—yes, the chicken-fried steak that plagues diners of the U.S. West and Southwest. But this version is not so bad: The beef is tender enough and the gravy has plenty of sausage and black pepper. The garlic mashed potatoes with the skin on and canned sweet corn make this meal way better than one I had last summer in South Dakota. There is a vegan version of this dish, as well as a variant of Buffalo wings called Toffalo wings. The wine list is tiny, but the beer selection is a good one. Lone Star makes a perfect accompaniment to the chicken-fried steak.
