Mike Gebert Post a comment

Other dishes here are decent, but this is really a one-dish spot—clean and bright and well run. Good fried chicken. No waiting. More

Chicago Lindsey Howald Patton 2 comments

Ras Daschen is one of a handful of solid Ethiopian restaurants you'll find tucked away in the city's far northeastern neighborhoods, and its atmosphere is arguably the coziest for an evening dinner. More

A Sandwich a Day Nathan Lurz 3 comments

The Mayor ($7.50) at Kitchen Sink decides that the best way to make a turkey sandwich better is to make it a peanut butter and jelly. More

The Brunch Dish: Sauce and Bread and Lots of Soul

The Brunch Dish Matt Kirouac Post a comment

The concept is simple: combine two adjoining businesses (Co-op Hot Sauce and Crumb Bread) to make one harmonious cafe. The resulting menu is more congruous than synchronized swimming, and weekend brunch features an array of saucy sandwiches, breakfast pastries, and nifty dishes that set Sauce and Bread miles apart (figuratively and literally) from Chicago's arsenal of brunch restaurants.

A Sandwich a Day: Jerk Chicken Sandwich at Jerky Jerk

A Sandwich a Day Nathan Lurz Post a comment

It's not a particularly fancy sandwich, nor does it match the classic image of the dish, but Jerk Chicken Sandwich at Jerky Jerk is a solid sammy all on its own. More

The Brunch Dish: M. Henrietta

The Brunch Dish Matt Kirouac 3 comments

Dining at m.henrietta is like wrapping yourself in a blanket knit by your grandma. Everything about this cottage-esque Edgewater nook wafts of comfort, most especially the "screw the New Yearʼs resolutions" menu of sweet and savory indulgences. More

A Sandwich a Day: Chicken Balsamique Sandwich at m.henrietta

A Sandwich a Day Nathan Lurz Post a comment

The star of the Chicken Balsamique Sandwich at m.henrietta ($9.95) is the tamarind balsamic syrup. Its sweet yet very savory flavor pervades the sandwich, balancing the dollop of very creamy goat cheese. More

A Sandwich a Day: Sandwich Cubano at La Unica Food Mart

A Sandwich a Day Nathan Lurz 1 comment

The Rogers Park/Edgewater border is one of the most diverse parts of Chicago, and it shows in the local cuisine. To get to one of its better sandwiches, however, you have to go a little further than what you see on storefronts. More

A Sandwich a Day: Veggie Dagwood Stacked Sandwich at M. Henry

A Sandwich a Day Josh Conley 6 comments

I have the extreme (mis)fortune of being surrounded in my life by vegetarians. I miss sharing entrees with my wife. But I said (mis), because I've been turned on to some excellent non-meat options, which is what led me to the Veggie Dagwood Stacked Sandwich at M. Henry. More

Chicago Tacos: Huaraches Doña Chio

Chicago Tacos Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

Yes, I did visit Huaraches Doña Chio without ordering a huarache. It's nothing against the sandal-shaped piece of masa (which I love), but I had a grand theory I wanted to test out: if this place prepared the huaraches to order using fresh masa, wouldn't there be a high probability that it would do the same with tortillas?

Behind the Sweets: Mara Jozefi Creates Transylvanian Pastries at Chimney Cake Island

Behind the Sweets Lindsey Becker 7 comments

Several years after inspiration struck, in December of 2010, Mara and Alex opened Chimney Cake Island near the intersection of Devon and Clark in Edgewater. Even though they are outside of their first year, they are still dealing with typical start-up problems but luckily Mara is putting out a consistently delicious pastry. And when I say delicious, I mean can't-stop-eating-this-thing-while-I'm-driving-and-now-there-are-walnuts-all-over-my-car delicious. More

Chicago Tacos: Taqueria Uptown

Chicago Tacos Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

I'm on the lookout for the passionate taqueria that will take on al pastor and stand as a shiny beacon of grilled pork for the rest of the city. In that respect, Taqueria Uptown in Edgewater should be one of the good guys. It has been serving honest-to-goodness al pastor for years. More
