Ema is a Mediterranean restaurant in River North that’s great for a sit-down meal in the neighborhood. But there’s also Rotisserie Ema, which is both connected to the main Ema and has its own separate entrance. Rotisserie Ema is only open from 11:30am-3pm during the way, so it’s specifically meant for the lunch crowd. You can grab some falafel, hummus, and a variety of Mediterranean salads for less than $15. It’s a quick way to get a good and semi-healthy meal.
