Because I Care: Where to Eat in Chicago, Part 2

Because I care…some more suggestions about where to eat from worried Facebook readers who thought I/we might miss a good place.  (And here’s my previous post about where to eat in Chicago during AWP, or anytime.)

“I love The Frontera Grill.”

“A bit of a schlep, but worth it, is the comfort food at FEED at 2803 West Chicago Avenue."

"And let's not forget Czerwone Jabłuszko (The Red Apple) on N. Milwaukee, just north of the Logan Square El stop on the Blue Line. Pierogi, naleśniki, gołąbki (stuffed cabbage) and much much more."

"Keep going north, see if the Ram's Head is still serving fine Polish cuisine on the near south side of Milwaukee. Kluski zoupa!"

"Topolobambo for Mexican. Shaw's Crabhouse for seafood. For Spanish, Cafe Iberico in the city and Tapas Barcelona (in the Northern Chicago suburb Evanston). For sushi, Matsuya in Wrigleyville"

“Don’t miss Cafe Iberico for tapas.” 

Thanks to all who made suggestions!  There’s no excuse for heading home from AWP without lugging back at least fifteen extra pounds of new books and Chicago cuisine!
