The Whale in Logan Square is allegedly a casino-themed restaurant. But other than the name (a term used for the highest high-roller), a vintage slot machine you can’t play, and some staged dice on a felt table, this place feels like any other big restaurant you’d find in Chicago. That being said, the food here makes it worth a visit. The menu offers everything from lobster tacos to fried chicken to Korean short ribs to roasted carrots. Yes, it’s all over the place, but everything is well prepared and tasty. And it’s a good Logan Square option for a group dinner.
