I went here last night! :) You can’t go wrong with Elliot’s comfort-food cuisine, such as the baked potato bisque, local whitefish with curried lentils and stewed raisins (pictured), and stuffed beignets with molten gianduja and powdered sugar. Who's hungry? G.E.B. Graham Elliot Bistro, 841 West Randolph Street

One of my fave new restaurants, Nellcote, 833 West Randolph Street (at North Green Street); 312-432-0500.

Little Goat Diner Stephanie Izard’s follow-up to Girl & the Goat (which is itself a popular Randolph Street spot) is an homage to diners. But while it’s possible to get a simple plate of eggs, bacon, and toast here, most of these classic dishes have Izardian twists: kimchi in the pancakes, goat chili on the cheese fries.
