The Weekender's Guide To: Chicago
by ALEX VAN BUREN - 7.27.2012
<p>One of the first restaurants to make Logan Square a destination, this charming husband-and-wife operation has become an ad hoc community center since opening more than a decade ago. Musicians, artists, and out-of-town chefs hang out here (often for hours), chatting up passersby from the small sidewalk tables while sipping wine and eating excellent seasonal American food. This is the kind of place you'll hit three times over a long weekend in town. It serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so it's a default go-to for those up early or out late (the kitchen is open till 1:00 a.m. on weekends, which is rare for Chicago). In addition to a simple all-day café menu, Lula turns out more "fancy" dishes at night, like pheasant and nettle cannelloni with hedgehog mushrooms. If you're in town, go for the Monday night farm dinner, a steal ($34) of a prix fixe.</p> <p><a href="http://www.bonappetit.com/blogsandforums/blogs/bafoodist/2012/07/chicago-travel-guide-where-to.html" target="_blank">View Article</a></p>
