Kala Modern Greek
Kala is part of the parade of new Chicago Greek restaurant openings—and this small, fast-casual Lincoln Park spot is a welcome addition. The menu has tasty souvlaki, flaky spanakopita, and desserts like housemade frozen yogurt with fluffy loukamades. Everything can be made into sandwiches or rice bowls (well, maybe not the frozen yogurt) with options like chicken, shrimp, and some delicious flash-fried mushrooms that taste like potato chips. The sunny space is always busy, the servers are really nice, and it’s a great option for a light lunch and dinner in the neighborhood.
