Galit is a Middle Eastern small plates restaurant in Lincoln Park, and you should make a reservation here immediately - maybe even before reading the rest of this caption. The food is across-the-board great - from the creamy hummuses (the one topped with brisket is a standout), to the light and crispy falafel, to a rich and spicy shakshuka. The space is large, and works well for groups, date night, and even dining solo at the long chef’s counter. In fact, the only problem with this spot is that you’re going to be tempted to try everything on the menu, and the costs can add up. But it’s worth it.
