Looking for suggestions in Evanston for a casual dinner on a Thursday night. Any cuisine...moderate prices...great food. What do you recommend?

  1. There was just a previous discussion on this and I have attached a link - my favorites for some dinners in evanston are:

    Lulu's, Blind Faith Cafe, Lucky Platter, Dave's Italian Kitchen and Sashimi -

    1. Lucy Platter is a good recommendation...very casual, almost diner style, but authentic food. Blue Moon on Central Street is very good.

        That's "Lucky Platter," and "Blue Stone," not Blue Moon. The former is on Main St. just east of Chicago Ave.

          Lucky Platter really SUCKS. I truly don't understand how ANYBODY who appreciates good food would ever want to eat at this place. Atmosphere is funky and kinda dirty... decoration is UGLY... they try to be "original" by putting wierd twists on regular recipes, but they end up RUINING the food !!! And, it's not cheap either.

            Do you mean the Blue Stone?

          2. Blind Faith is a good veggie spot...

            I enjoy the Davis Street Fish market. Not the best but pretty nice.

              Blind Faith is a really good place for vegetarian selections. They used to have the most delicious quiche in the world, but alas, they discontinued making this. But for salads, stir fries, fresh juices, the place is very good, with a nice atmosphere too.

            2. Very surprised no one has mentioned Chef's Station, underneath one of the El stations. I have had great meals there. French/American

                That is another good choice - particularly on a nice nitght with the outdoor seating -
