medici on Surf/ sheridan

  • p

What a great little restaurant in Lakeview that's been around for years- comfortable warm interior- great salads, burgers, nightly specials, and highly recommended beef stroganoff

A giant step above all those diners, and priced about the same- I'm sad because the place is always 3/4 empty when I walk by there at night

  1. I, too, was always a fan of the Medici on Surf when I lived right across the street. I even brought two friends visiting from Spain there for their first American hamburger, which is still one of my favorites in the city.

    They do a lovely brunch as well, and maybe that allows them to make up a little for the slow evenings. I think they also do a decent "early bird" dinner business thanks to the many retirement buildings along Sheridan and the Inner Drive. There always seemed to be people in there at 5 pm.
