Paris Bistro's menu shines a spotlight on crepes—the thinner, more sophisticated sibling of pancakes. Chefs fill these delicate, versatile circles with both sweet and savory fillings. The Mona Lisa crepe, for instance, has a hearty center of rotisserie chicken, sundried tomatoes, and basil cream, which is what the Mona Lisa tastes like if you get close enough to lick it. For a touch of sweetness, the Monkey and Nuts crepe blends bananas with Nutella, hazelnut, and fig chocolate bark. Diners can also furnish their bellies with non-crepe items such as lobster ravioli, beef roast, and rotisserie chicken, and wash down bites with sangrias, healthy teas infused with B12, and selections from the Chateau French wine list. The bistro's takeout area, Paris2Go, fuels busy bodies with espresso, cappuccino, and quick meals.

2835 Show Place Drive

Comfort food doesn't have to be unsophisticated, and the elegant atmosphere at Chicago's Home of Chicken and Waffles III has proved it. Amid the dining room's refined decor, hosts usher diners to private tables where they tackle one of 14 variations of the restaurant’s eponymous dish. Whether laden with wings, breast, or gizzards, the crispy waffle discs can be customized with buckwheat or pecans or served Windy City style—with whipped cream and a choice of sundae-inspired toppings. The chefs take their sides seriously, too—soul-food staples abound to frame main courses with mac ‘n’ cheese, collard greens, and Cajun red beans and rice, sometimes accompanied by live jazz performances.
