After renovating the entire restaurant himself, the head chef and owner of Leland Eating & Drinking House opened this Prospect Heights spot on a quiet corner just off of Washington Avenue. On the sidewalk patio, you’ll see a few private, heated outdoor shacks they’re calling “cozy cabins,” but there’s also a takeout window where you can pick up a pastry, bottle of wine, or cocktail to go. Everything from their creamy seafood chowder to their incredible vegan hot buns will make you me feel like you’re dining at a mountain lodge run by Julia Child, when in reality you’re at a Brooklyn restaurant run by an ex-Fedora chef.
