Wishbone - West Loop
Southern | West Loop
8 reviews

Located one block from Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios and perfectly centered between City Hall and the United Center, Wishbone West Loop was an early participant in the emergence of the neighborhood from a commercial area to one of the city's culinary hot spots. We've been there through it all, quietly serving our own unique brand of Southern Cooking.

Epiphany
Creole / Cajun / Southern | Lincoln Park
5 reviews

Epiphany Bistro is THE choice for Cajun and Creole cuisine, flavorful frozen cocktails, and music. Transplanted to the Lincoln Park area of Chicago, inspiration comes from beloved recipes passed down generation to generation from a family tree rooted in "Nawlins". On Sundays and Tuesdays the brassy strains of jazz flow across down-home seating, creating on a piece of Louisiana's rich historic and cultural diversity.
The menu features interpretations of New Orleans staples' gumbo, shrimp 'n' grits, and Jambalaya mixed with Chef Wrenn's signature creations like Lobster Mac 'N' Cheese, Mango Jerk Wraps and Brazilian Collard Greens. Comfort and plenty of spice plate every dish and the Quarter's best frozen adult beverages are perfect for a quick cool down.
