What was once Boone's Tavern, known for giant TV screens and rabid sports fans betting on everything from football to mixed martial arts, has morphed into the Rosedale, home of warm wood tones and oysters on the half shell. The Platt Park bar's transformation in early 2016 brought it more in line with its neighbor and sister restaurant, Atticus. A few welcome vestiges from Boone's still remain, though — the surprisingly good barbecue and drunken spelling bees are our favorites — and while the number of television screens has gone down, it's still a great spot for watching the big game.
