Comfort food doesn't have to be unsophisticated, and the elegant atmosphere at Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles has proved it. Amid exposed brick, fine art, and gilded ceilings, diners nestle into high-backed booths to 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 pecans. 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.
