Moving to Lakeview...where to eat?
I'm moving to East Lakeview this week. What are the good neighborhood restaurants and cheap ethnic places I have to try? Anything within a mile's walk of Belmont and Broadway is good. I'll walk further for something truly amazing.
PS Bangkok, on Clark a block or so north of Belmont, has a good Sunday buffet with the best pad thai in Chicago.
Yoshi's Cafe (www.yoshiscafe.com) at 3257 N. Halsted has been around for 20 years and serves immaculately preprared imaginative Asian and American cuisine. It's a bit of splurge (but casual), but it is fantastic, both for lunch, and especially for dinner.
Another nice place is Erwin Cafe at 29?? Halsted. Great, no-frills contemporary American cuisine. www.erwincafe.com.
Finally, for super, authentic Italian hop on the 152 bus and go west (about 10 minutes) on Addison to Terragusto Cafe. Small byob that makes their own pasta fresh daily - superb. www.terragustocafe.com
