A chance meeting at a cocktail party turned into a life change for Jim Dragatsis and Sandeep Malhotra who joined culinary forces in 2006 to create Marigold Restaurant, an Indian eatery infused with modern elements. To breathe life into their menu, the duo brought in Executive Chef Joe Moore, who has keenly and artistically crafted such entrees as tandoori barbecue lamb ribs, naanwiches, and curries seasoned with grilled fennel. This creative approach to Indian food earned the Uptown eatery a shout out in the 2011 Michelin Guide, and allowed them to upgrade to new digs in Andersonville in the fall of 2012. Though the location may have changed, guests can still dine on savory platters of tandoor-baked naan, house-made paneer, and fresh chutney while sipping on sweet mango lassi, Chakra Indian beer, or a variety of creative cocktails.

La Cocina de Frida

Sisters Marlene and Lidia Benitez opened La Concina to celebrate their two loves: authentic Mexican cooking and artist Frida Kahlo. Surrounded by portraits of Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera, diners dig into dishes inspired by the painter, such as the signature bomba frida a dish that allows diners to fill corn tortillas to their liking with a bounty of ingredients, including cubed pork, ham, chorizo, pineapple, bell peppers, and a chile de arbol salsa. Praised by the Chicago Reader for its “hearty home-style cooking served up by a friendly staff,” the eatery also offers dishes plucked straight from the sisters' family cookbook, including grilled chicken breast in mole sauce with peanuts, almonds, and roasted sesame seeds. There's also a sizeable drink menu that includes the Kahlo margarita––a refreshing combination of tequila, amaretto, lime, and orange juice––which may be perfectly paired with one of the shop's spicier dishes, including a seared tilapia in a diabla sauce hot enough to elicit cease-and-desist letters from the sun.

There’s no Jerry at Jerry’s. Owners Mark Bires and Mindy Friedler chose the moniker as an homage to Jerry Garcia, whose freewheeling spirit they evidently share, given that they’ve traveled the country sampling sandwiches ranging from Chicago's italian beefs to Philly's cheesesteaks, from New Orleans's po boys to New England’s lobster rolls. It’s easy to see the influence of their journeys on the eatery’s menu, a staggering array of more than 100 regional and ethnic sandwiches that could make a magic 8 ball cloud over from indecision. Root-beer-glazed ham, beef tenderloin, and fried tofu are but a few of the sandwiches’ centerpieces, their flavors accented by offerings such as fried green tomatoes and grilled asparagus. Diners can also customize their own creations from a board filled with meats, veggies, and 10 different bread options. Hand-formed burgers, rustic-cut fries, and decadent desserts add weight to the menu like an extra stripe adds weight to a zebra. At the eatery's bar, diners scan rows of roughly 200 American craft beers accessible by bottle or tap, and they savor a selection of 70 American whiskeys. When the digital jukebox needs a break, Jerry's hosts live music, the catchy tunes of which slither through door cracks and out to the outdoor dining area.
