The space here reminds us of a furniture store - there’s a large waiting area with a fireplace and couches that look staged - but you can forgive that once you’re seated and start eating. Nothing on the Mediterranean small-plates menu is bad, but it’s the vegetable dishes, like the roasted fennel served in a citrus broth with grapefruit and oranges, that stand out. Come here for date night, or to catch up with friends at the bar.

Awesome shellfish in a basement dive bar complete with year-round Christmas lights. Go eat all the crab and drink all the beer.

Bellemore is an upscale restaurant in the West Loop serving very pretty but somewhat uneven American food.
Homestead on the Roof
So many farm-to-table restaurants, zero farms around. Homestead changes that a bit by growing vegetation on site.
Suggested by our writers
Classy without being overly pretentious. Riccardo Trattoria is one of our favorite Italian restaurants around.
Arguably the best pizza in town. Spacca Napoli is doing Neapolitan pies the way they're meant to be done.
