From Our Editors

Sustainable, farm-fresh ingredients transformed into Mexican small plates. That’s what separates Chilam Balam from other tapas restaurants. It’s also what garnered owner Soraya Rendon’s creation—fortified by the talents of executive chef Natalie Oswald—the highly coveted Bib Gourmand award from the 2013 Michelin Guide. Tucked a few steps below ground on Broadway Avenue, this cozy BYOB Lakeview retreat cultivates ingredients exclusively from farms in Illinois and Wisconsin, all in an effort to preserve the earth and nurture the local community. The seasonal menu changes every month or so, but may herald items such as fried-squash risotto, roasted lobster over purple potatoes, and crispy flautas stuffed with chicken thighs and drizzled with chipotle sauce. No matter what Chef Oswald serves, customers get to enjoy it amid the warmth of vibrant yellow and orange walls, juxtaposed by exposed brick and sleek black tables.
