At Ace's Gourmet Paninis, culinary-school grad Chef Van presides over an unlikely marriage between the Italian-born panini and the flavors of Southern comfort fare. He presses only quality ingredients into his sandwiches, including three signature paninis loaded with chicken, beef brisket, or pulled pork slathered in house barbecue sauce. His menu also flaunts a separate breakfast section that highlights paninis and burritos stuffed with more eggs and meats than a vending machine for bodybuilders. His renditions of childhood favorites, such as peanut butter and jelly, even please pintsize palates. Patrons can settle in to surf free WiFi in the eatery or grab a takeout container to feast at home.:
Paw Paw's is a quaint little 50's style soda shoppe with old fashioned ice cream desserts, and a more modern day menu. We pride ourselves on using the best ingredients we can find to make your meal or Dessert a delight to the palate. All of our soups, salads and daily desserts are homemade. Famous for our chicken salad.
Windy City Dawgs serves up a hearty menu that revolves around eats inspired by––or chartered directly from––Chicago. Meat cravings find savory satiation with a Chicago-style Vienna beef hot dog ($4) or a slow-cooked seasoned italian beef sandwich ($5.25) cradled by crisp-crusted Gonnella bread. Or, please Chi-hungry taste buds with made-from-scratch pan pizzas ($13+) and Supreme tamales ($1.60), a cylindrical classic since 1950, with a cornmeal shell––much like the Hamburglar's getaway car––filled to the brim with ground beef and spices.
