Don't Miss Lunch at Cellar Door Provisions

Chicago Joe Roy Post a comment

Cellar Door Provisions is the sort of place I never want to leave, and they make it easy to stay all day: Fresh bread and breakfast dishes are available at 8am, pastries start hitting the counter at 9, and the day's butcher paper scrawled lunch offerings are available at 11. More

Eat This Now: Excellent Carne Asada Pambazo at El Habanero

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 8 comments

Sure, it's messy, and there is essentially no way your fingers and half your face won't be dyed red by the end, but it's all worth it for one of the best examples of the pambazo in Chicago. More

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 18 comments

Does Analogue Serve the Best Cajun Food in Chicago?

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 4 comments

Cellar Door Provisions currently only makes one kind bread (though they do sell a range of pastries). But who cares about choice when that one is such a genuine wonder? More

What is Your Pretzel Preference?

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 13 comments

If you prefer an airy and light pretzel, slicked with butter and lightly sprinkled with salt, the offering at The Radler is your guy. But if you like some crispness and perhaps a dark mahogany crust on your pretzel, you might want to look elsewhere. More

Chicago Amber Gibson 1 comment

For vegetarians, Lula has several appetizer and entrée options, and there is even a six-course vegetarian tasting menu ($45) offered nightly. The tasting menu comprises a selection of dishes from the regular menu—three appetizers, an entrée, a cheese course, and a dessert. In other words, every vegetarian item on the menu. More

Brunch at Parson's could not have come at a better time. As Chicago endures one of the most savage winters in recent memory, the sunny environment and vibrant comfort food at this Logan Square haunt are just the distraction we need. More

First Impressions: Parts and Labor Brings Griddled Burgers to Logan Square

Given its equally well-stocked bar and reasonable prices, Parts and Labor has all the makings of a neighborhood haunt. For ten bucks, you can get a double cheeseburger, a side, and a beer or shot. More

This little neighborhood gem invented a fusion of two cultures breathtaking in its innovation: the gyros Jibarito. Whoa. Take a few minutes to let it soak in, if you need them. More

First Impressions: We Eat Most Everything at State Fair, and You Should, Too

Chicago Joe Roy 6 comments

Despite its name, the restaurant quickly strays from its central conceit: there's nothing particularly fair-ish about sliders, Chicago dogs, and root beer floats. That's hardly a slight: State Fair is at its best when putting its own spin on the dishes rather than adhering slavishly to a concept. More

Lula Cafe Transforms into House of Hunan Human (for Halloween)

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

No restaurant in Chicago loves Halloween as much as Lula Cafe. How else can you explain the Logan Square spot's inclination to dress up every October 31st as a completely different restaurant concept. This year's theme is the most frightening one yet. More

We Try All the New Biscuit Sandwiches at Bang Bang Pie Shop

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

The most surprising thing about the new biscuit sandwiches is that Bang Bang didn't take the easy route.
