Favorite Restaurant in Andersonville/Ravenswood area?
Hey everyone! New to the board; just found it earlier this week and a proud Ravenswood resident (Winnemac & Ashland)
Just thought I would introduce myself and poll everyone for their favorite spot in Ravenswood and or Andersonville. I have my favorites, but I'd love to see what everyone else says.
Mike, the Beatnik...
Hop Leaf - beer, mussels
Calo's - thin crust pizza
Andies - Middle Eastern
Taste of Lebanon - chicken shawarma sandwich
Farrugets - love that place in the summer when the windows are open
Tokyo Marino - good cheap sush
Any discussion of Andersonville food sources must include more than restaurants: 1) Middle Eastern Bakery & Grocery (Foster just west of Clark) for olives, freshly-baked pita, homemade spinach pies, giant dates, hummos etc; 2) Swedish Bakery, Clark near Balmoral for Julekaka and everything else; 3) Edgewater Produce, Clark just below Bryn Mawr for lovely well-priced produce, Mexican products; 4) Pars Grocery (across Clark from Reza's) for bags of dried dill so you can fix rice the way Reza's does; 5) Swedish deli Wykstroms and the other one across Clark from it (I forget the name) for Swedish deli and grocery products. Clark between Foster and Bryn Mawr is one of the best food-shopping strips in the city---if you go there for lunch, always take a shopping bag with you.
