Bitterman's Market Square Bar & Grill

Jeff Balke
Located in north downtown, Bitterman's Market Square Bar & Grill is a relaxed restaurant featuring burgers, salads and beer. The restaurant claims to have captured the ambiance of a Chicago or Philadelphia-style neighborhood bar, then given it a Texas twist with menu items like quesadillas and fajita salad. Television stationed throughout the restaurant allow diners to watch the game, and free wireless internet is available. The large back patio - an anomaly downtown - makes Bitterman's a popular choice for after-work happy hours.
