The Fat Shallot

After starting out as a food truck operation (hence the truck-shaped neon sign by the counter), Fat Shallot opened up their first brick and mortar in Lincoln Park. The menu only has six sandwiches, but they all taste great. The crispy buffalo chicken with creamy blue cheese and the Reuben with housemade corned beef are two of our favorites, especially when paired with a fun cocktail like a gin and tonic slushy, or an Adult Arnold Palmer. Similar to the menu, the space is compact: only a handful of tables and a couple of counter seats by the cashier. But, it's perfect for a quick lunch, casual dinner, or grabbing something to go.
