This Irish pub in Lincoln Square is dark and cozy, has a long beer list, and perfectly fine bar food. In other words, there isn't much setting it apart from the hundreds of other spots in the area that are just like it - except for the Grafton's fantastic fireplace. It's made of stone, burns real wood, and makes this place one of our favorite winter destinations.
