Maybe they're referring to New York's famed thoroughfare, but on Chicago's Broadway, "There's always magic in the air!"
Wow, this is seriously tasty food (and great service!). Delve into the Taiwanese menu-don't worry, your server will translate it for you-and you'll be richly rewarded. From the Chinese menu, don't miss the potstickers.
The quintessential Chicago jazz spot remains virtually unchanged from its early days. A very, very mixed crowd fills the room. You'll pay an admission charge, but drinks are inexpensive.
This buyer/seller shop goes above & beyond the call of duty, with fantastic service, in-store performances, & special orders for extreme music nerds.
Old-school charm with heaping portions (and the rare parking lot!) make this spot busy round-the-clock. Stick to traditional Jewish dishes and grab a black & white cookie on your way out.
An authentic pub where interesting characters raise pints & play board games & jam to live tunes. Fun change of pace- you never know what you're gonna get!
The burgers are simple yet legendary and the shaded outdoor patio is as good as it gets. Dog-friendly to boot!
This shop is full of cycling geeks, which bodes well even if you're a clueless biker. Great service, whether you need a tune-up or a new set of wheels.
Your inner child will do cartwheels when you walk into this whimsical scoop shop. Try the Lakeview Sunset or the seasonal flavor (mmm...pumpkin!). Tasty shakes too.
Healthy and fun, you can't go wrong here. Spring for the falafel bowl (love the seasonal flaves) and fill it at the stocked salad bar, where the beets are a must-try.
A snazzy, subterranean cantina with a hop vibe and excellent authentic dishes. BYO tequila & they'll mix up some tasty margs!
Love this spot for a long, lingering lunch. Crepes are awesome--esp. the peach/mushroom--and the fun drinks are worth the calorie-splurge!
A cool spot where they're seriously serious about what they do. Fun to simply browse the stacks, or sell/trade your records, vinyl, cds, dvds, or books.
Whether you eat gluten (the whole menu is gf) or not, there's some delish fine dining to be done here. Great ambience for a date; fun drinks for a girl's night out!
