It’s surprising how many Chicago restaurants are closed on Sunday for dinner. Sunday brunch? Sure! No problem. The doors are wide open! But Sunday dinner is another matter entirely.
I never realized that until I was on the hook this week to find a Sunday dinner spot that I’d never tried before. I combed our dining wish list and repeatedly came up with nothing. So in a moment of desperation, I turned to Twitter for help.
I asked for comfy, fun, and tasty dinner options and got a ton of great ideas! Here they are so you won’t go hungry this Sunday:
bschit: Balkan Cafe in Ravenswood?
krepthin: Osteria Via Stato
VanessaHayes: Try the Raw Bar & grill on Clark Sunday night. Their crispy salmon has been on the menu forever & is my fav Salmon dish ever.
VanessaHayes: Raw Bar also specializes in more exotic seafood too. Their alligator appetizer is awesomely delicious!
showsomemoxie: Rodan in Wicker Park is dead on Sun & always good. Maya del Sol in Oak Park has an awesome patio & again always good.
WFMEvanstonS: Great Lakes has communal seating for about 12. They open at 5, so queue up at 4:30. BYOB. The experience is worth it!
Zesmerelda: How about Brown Trout in Lincoln Square for Sunday?
this_is_laird: Have you been to Thai Spice in Roger’s Park? Amazing cucumber salad. It has a hot/cold thing going. Best thai in the city!
valerie_rae: Pennysnoodle shop???
WFMEvanstonS: Ever been to Lucky Platter in Evanston?
smartkahuna: Nothing fancy (beer garden) but real food served by real dudes.
smartkahuna: Potato creek johnny’s now serving brunch. Bloody Mary or Maria makes a nice start too!
kuraiou: osteria via strato?
NHRAchik67: How about Flavor in Flossmoor? Oh so good!!! http://bit.ly/171TSx
WFMEvanstonS: Few of my faves: Home Bistro, Lula Cafe, Uncommon Ground, all open Sunday!
readinggirl1984: L20 is good, if you want to spend a little bit more. Arun’s is always a nice place to go on a Sunday. Now I’m hungry! :-p
SecndCitySoiree How about Red Rooster?
bbdadd: Where are you looking? If north suburbs try Noodle or @DepotNuevo in Wilmette owned by same family http://www.depotnuevo.com
mamaliga: Spacca Napoli??
