  • Wâfel
    Waffles might be their only offering, but Wâfel is anything but a formal restaurant. Instead, it's a counter-service café, serving steamy beverages from its full coffee bar and selling virtually nothing that requires a knife and fork to eat. Instead, each of their waffles are "fold and go"; that is, sandwiched firmly around their ingredients so every selection only requires two hands to devour. The waffle artisans craft sweet and savory sandwiches from traditional Brussels waffles, which are leavened with yeast for a puffier, airier consistency than the standard American waffle. The recipe might be traditional, but what fills these sandwiches is anything but—selections run the gamut from scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheddar to fried chicken and maple syrup to The Elvis, a blend of bacon, peanut butter, banana, and honey. For a more dessert-like treat, try a Liège waffle. This style, also puffed up with yeast, is thicker and doughier than its Brussels brethren, and contains imported Belgian pearl sugar that caramelizes on the waffle iron to form a crispy exterior that contrasts with the soft interior, much like a sunbathing marshmallow Peep. These waffles are delicious on their own, or dipped in a rotating menu of sauces such as apple-cinnamon cream cheese, jam, and––of course––Belgian chocolate.

  • Grange Hall Burger Bar
    Grange Hall Burger Bar began as the brainchild of a group of restaurateurs who wanted to bring a great burger to the West Loop. While investigating America's meat industry, they realized that their idea of a great burger is made of entirely farm-to-table ingredients. They decided to use locally raised free-range beef and turkey, and in sculpting the perfect burger, the farm-to-table philosophy became a core tenet of the restaurant that extended to the rest of the menu. The staff members make veggie and legume burgers, fresh-churned artisanal ice creams, and seasonal housemade pies with ingredients that come from as close to Chicago as possible. Some of the produce they preserve, jarring it as jams and jellies. Others they add into farmer's dinners and breakfasts, which are hearty meals inspired by the hard-working folks who raised the ingredients. Every day, the eatery crafts a unique hot dog with market-fresh ingredients that are often acquired by the chef on drives through surrounding states. The recipe always starts with a grass-fed beef sausage, with every other step determined by the ingredients on hand.
