Hungry locals can crack a Babygold Coldbeer, listen to some live tunes and place an order for some chef-driven barbecue on the Veltway. Babygold Barbecue, 6615 W. Roosevelt Rd., officially opened for business at FitzGerald’s Nightclub on Thursday, May 6.

The much-anticipated Berwyn restaurant, helmed by notable Chicago chef and Berwyn resident John Manion, puts a New Orleans inspired twist on a thoughtful array of smoked meats and sides. Menu highlights include chargrilled oysters, smoked whitefish dip, smoked brisket and a burger adorned with bacon aioli. Vegetarians will be happy to discover a cauliflower Po’boy, kale Ceasar salad and several veggie-friendly side dishes on the Babygold menu.

Open Tuesday-Friday at 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at noon.
