Tony Mantuano, chef-partner at Spiaggia in Chicago (Outstanding Wine Program nominee): "There's an off-the-radar spot in Old Town called Glunz Tavern, attached to the House of Glunz wine shop. It's a family-owned, historic business that opened in 1888. It's still owned and operated by the same family: Barbara Glunz and her son, Christopher. The tavern is filled to the brim with artifacts from their 120 years in business: old menus from the 1920s, vintage beer signs, an 1800s mermaid figurehead from the bow of a ship—the environment is so unique. Plus, the wine selection at House of Glunz is incredible."
