Vegetarian in Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukrainian Village
Chicago doesn't offer many opportunities for chic vegetarian fare, which may explain why Beard-award-winning chef Shawn McClain’s slick restaurant has been so successful for the past decade-plus. The menu focuses on creative seasonal odes to meatless fare. Rich broths, unconventional curries and dumplings all make appearances. It’s a small-plate setup, so you’ll have to order three or four to make a meal.
