I'm at a loss...Dinner tonight near Apollo Theatre

geg5150 Oct 15, 2010 09:38 AM

I cannot think of a thing! I have a friend in town and we're going to see a show at the Apollo at 10:30 tonight. Need recs for dinner before hand near the Apollo or anywhere off the Brown Line between Kedzie and Diversey.

We went to The Purple Pig last night and tomorrow we're going to Hopleaf. We're not looking for anything fancy, just casual, really tasty dinner. I was thinking about Chilam Balam in Lakeview. Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance and sorry for the short notice!

    Also, I ate at Merlo la Salumeria. It was fabulous, tho not casual

      All these are nice to because you can hop on the Lincoln bus after and get to the Apollo that way too.

        Chizakaya is great, but a bit of a walk from the Southport brown line.

        Just down the street from The Apollo is Kyoto Sushi Restaurant

        Fair food, but it tends to get loud and crowded college kids.
