If an alien visited Lowerline, a new Creole restaurant in Prospect Heights, they would go back to their mothership with the impression that running a great restaurant on planet earth is easy. And that the word “po boy” is standard vocab for what they know as “food between bread.” To us humans, Lowerline serves excellent Creole food without making a big deal about it. Everything is fresh, from the oysters they shuck at the bar to the whole crab leg in your gumbo bowl. This is not a fancy restaurant by any means, but the tiny brick-and-tile space and relaxed service make it feel like the kind of place you don’t deserve to just stumble upon in your neighborhood. The only catch here is that there are roughly 15 seats. But tables turn over pretty quickly, so you likely won’t have to wait long. And if you do, The Bearded Lady is right down the street.
