Great Food, Great Service, Reasonable Prices!! Fond Memories of This Area From Many Years Ago.!! Parking on the street if you are lucky, or reasonably priced valet service. It was a pleasure to go back to old Chicago for a great dinner.

I had the best homemade sangria ever at this restaurant and the food is delicious as well. My friend enjoys the white fish and the side order of spinach. The restaurant is small and cozy with white tablecloth.
