Lincoln Park Restaurants
Restaurants are as varied and numerous in Lincoln Park as the tastes of the people who patronize them. There are fast food joints, cozy diners, eclectic coffee shops and restaurants of every cuisine. One-of-a-kind restaurants include Café Ba-Ba-Reeba!, a tapas restaurant, and Dunlay’s on Clark for upscale dining. Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Company is well known for its delicious Mediterranean bread and its “grinder,” a pizza that is served in a bowl.
Some well-known chains can also be found in the neighborhood. BW3’s Buffalo Wild Wings, henceforth found only in the suburbs, has made its way into the city. Pockets and several similar quick-dine options are scattered throughout Lincoln Park. For dessert, try Treats, Ethel’s Chocolate Bar or the sophisticated Vanille Patisserie.
Sushi restaurants are becoming increasingly popular; they are popping up all over the city. Lincoln Park has its share with Edo Sushi, Kabuki and Hey Sushi. Ethnic restaurants are also plentiful; there is Raj Darbar, which serves Indian food, Fattoush, serving Mediterranean cuisine, and Pars Cave, a Persian restaurant.
With the large number of students and young professionals living in the area, Lincoln Park has an active nightlife. There are bars and clubs such as Duffy’s Tavern and Grill, Galway Bay Pub and Corner Pocket, as well as the very popular Kingston Mines, a blues club with two stages for live shows and an ever-rambunctious crowd.
