This is a friendly, fun place to hang out with buddies and family. Seating is prompt, and the range of pizzas is limited, but mouth-wateringly delicious! Soccer games on the telly, and pepperoni, blue cheese, jalapeno, and olive toppings have made Pizza Metro popular with all age groups. Pastas, salads, beverages and desserts are also available. All in all, a great pizza parlor this side of Wicker Park.
Two popular restaurant owners, Paul LoDuca (of Vinci) and Scott Helm (of Café Gordon and the now-defunct Rhumba) joined forces to create this upscale contemporary Mexican restaurant. Adobo Grill offers such delights as chalupas and Malsa Boats filled with guacamole, black beans and topped with queso frecso. The Grilled Quail sweetened with a sugarcane spear also deserves attention. The decor's bright orange and yellow tones and lively Mexican art match its modern south-of-the-border cuisine. Stop by if you're ever in the mood for some Mexican flavors.

Club Lucky has become a tradition for many Chicagoans. Diners can enjoy their meals in the dining room or in the red booths that litter the authentic cocktail lounge. The bar area replicates the lounge that stood in the same location in 1938. Club Lucky's biggest draw is the heaping portions of Sicilian cuisine, including homemade pastas, and giant slabs of succulent steak and ribs. Or, just stop by after work for a 'killer martini' with hand-stuffed olives.
Mirai is where the chic crowd feasts on sushi. The employees and a large portion of the customers are beautiful enough and dressed well enough to be models, and they set the aesthetic tone that follows with the food itself. The first floor is a standard sushi bar presentation, with an ever changing menu, depending on what fresh ingredients are available. The second floor resembles a club atmosphere, where you can relax and take in the atmosphere.
Cleo's is a great neighborhood bar with friendly bartenders, a choice selection of single-malt scotches and whiskeys and a respectable lineup of beers on tap. The customers are friendly and sociable, although conversation dies down noticeably during the feeding frenzy that follows the arrival of the food. This is because the food here is a noticeably above good pub grub, and the different daily specials are a steal. Check out the chicken wings, outstanding chili and interesting pizzas. On Mondays, the bartender turns off the jukebox and turns Cleo's into a jazz lover's haven, spinning tracks by Bird, Diz, Bill Evans and their friends.
If you would like to try some pizza and pasta in a relaxed atmosphere, you have come to the right place. The decor is total pizza parlor, complete with red and white checkered tablecloths and display cases of cream pies and cookies. The general flavor of the menu selections here is fried, greasy and breaded, but the prices are right. The Ricotta and Spinach-filled Shells are tasty, or try a 9-inch Pizzetta, which feeds two. The atmosphere is definitely neighborhood-friendly, making a perfect place for groups who just want to have a laid-back evening.
