Readers, rejoice: No one will think you’re socially inept if you crack open a book at Bibliophile (1644 E. 53rd St.). With its floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, the bar and restaurant also serves as a bookstore, inviting you to pick a volume off its shelves to take home or read as you sit (and sip). The spot is right at home in scholarly Hyde Park, full of tome-toting U. of C. students and faculty.
