If I'm in Old Town, it's either for a show at Second City or a movie at Piper's Alley, and this is my place for dinner. It's a cozy, casual little place that is never crowded but always great. The atmosphere is mixed: they have some gorgeous tapestries and paintings, but their dinnerware is anything but, with sandwiches served in baskets and their plates have bizarre black-and-yellow hazard designs. But I'm not eating the plates (!), so that hardly matters considering their excellent grape leaves, creamy hummus, fresh falafel sandwiches, and tasty vegetarian platters. They also make a nice piece of baklava.
Pros: excellent food, lovely artwork
