Kitchen 17′s menu is another good reminder that not all vegan food is supposed to be healthy. Don’t come here looking for something light, because what you’ll find is vegan bar food like pizza, nachos, and burgers. Everything tastes good - their housemade seitan in particular has a great texture. This Lakeview spot is BYOB, but the space feels like a bar (dark, with lots of wood and dim lighting). Just don’t look for a salad on the menu - you won’t find one.

Awesome shellfish in a basement dive bar complete with year-round Christmas lights. Go eat all the crab and drink all the beer.
Crisp is one of Chicago’s best wing spots, and it’s all about the Seoul Sassy jumbo wings here. Get them delivered or pop in for a quick bite.
bopNgrill is a cheap and quick eats Korean-American fusion spot. We’ve turned it into a new dance move.

Parson’s Chicken & Fish
Parson’s Fried Chicken & Fish serves good fried chicken on the best patio in town. This is an excellent hangout spot when it’s nice outside.
Maple & Ash
Maple & Ash sits in the middle of the Chicago steakhouse Venn diagram. It’s both new-school and old.
