Places to Eat in Wrigleyville Chicago

Tuscany Chicago

Tuscany is tucked into a corner and easy to miss. Be sure not to miss it!

Tuscany Restaurant on Clark, 3700 N. Clark - Official Web Site

This small, cozy establishment is tucked into a corner and easy to miss; however, missing it would mean foregoing a truly pleasant dining experience. Once seated at your table in one of two small dining rooms, or in the outdoor seating area, you will be offered bread with a plate of roasted garlic, cheese and oil. The bread is fresh and the garlic whets your appetite for the meal to come. As you wait, take in the friendly atmosphere and the din of content diners at nearby tables; there is a buzz to the room that is inviting and lively.

Try the bruschetta as an appetizer; it is topped with fresh, red tomatoes and seasoned to perfection. If you are in the mood for pasta, the Four Cheese Ravioli is the way to go; each ravioli is stuffed with meat and parmesan cheese in a four cheese sauce. For a more carnivorous appetite, try the Veal Parmesan; this is a breaded veal topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. The subtle flavors that characterize dishes at Tuscany make you want to linger over your meal and enjoy every morsel.

For a delicious meal and pleasant service, Tuscany is an excellent choice.

Julius Meinl, 3601 N. Southport

This coffeehouse is unique, in that there are only two in the world. One is in Vienna, Austria, and the other is right here in Wrigleyville. Indeed, stepping into this spacious café is like stepping into Vienna itself: many ingredients are directly imported from Austria and ensure a genuinely exotic experience. You will notice blackboards featuring names of Austrian delicacies and other European specialties, all available at the café. Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and a fixed price menu, you can choose anything from a full meal to a simple coffee.

Julius Meinl Chicago

There are only 2 Julius Meinl coffeehouses in the world

Be sure to linger at the pastry counter and take in the aesthetically pleasing cupcakes, cakes and cookies. Each one looks like a mini work of art and the experience of tasting one is no less pleasing.

If you are in the mood for a caffeine kick, try the Café Mocha; this is Meinl espresso, Meinl European cocoa and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream. The Hot Chocolate is incredibly delicious; made with European cocoa, it is rich and can almost be a meal unto itself. Both drinks make excellent complements to the wide array of pastries.

There is outdoor seating at the café, but if live music is being featured that day, be sure to find a seat inside. The music is beautiful and can vary from a quartet of violinists to a pair of Spanish guitars. Lean back, listen to the music, take in the artfully decorated walls and revel in the tastes that only Julius Meinl can offer.
