Tommy Nevin's Irish Pub

Tommy Nevin's Irish Pub

Evanston, IL

Irish comfort food heaven. Love their Shepard pie and the lamb tips paired with a pint of Guinness

Quince At The Homestead

Quince At The Homestead

Evanston, IL

Do yourself a favor. Drive, CTA or cab 2 Evanston for 1 of my fave restaurants. I don't like bone marrow (shoot me!) but this is 2 die for.

Edzo's Burger Shop

Edzo's Burger Shop

Evanston, IL

They come for the burgers (amazing!) but they fall in love with the giant, hand-spun shakes (to die for). Be an insider and ask for the off-menu Elvis shake or Speculoos shake. You really can't go wrong.

Bagel Art

Bagel Art

Evanston, IL

Cute bagel spot that serves Intelligentsia coffee and has rotating art installations. In addition to a wide variety of bagels, you'll find sandwiches and other baked goods.

Cafe Mozart. What a chill, delightful, non-college student coffee shop where real adults can meet for an excellent cappuccino and conversation. … read more


Found Kitchen. Best place in Evanston- ever. Amy Morton has figured out what this suburb needs- great food, craft cocktails and a comfortable, people watching space. Cozy up in one of the love bar seats or low slung couches. Chef Nicole Pederson is a genius and I love sous chef Ryan Brosseau's pea meal bacon sandwich with runny egg, soft brioche and pork jus-infused mayo. Woah. … read more
