The owner and head chef of Mia Figlia, John Boudouvas, can trace his culinary ambitions back to his childhood when he worked with his father at their family diner on the North Side of Chicago. After he shored up his technical expertise with formal training, Boudouvas toured the world to expand his palate. Upon his return to Chicago, he opened his own classic Italian restaurant, naming it Mia Figlia—Italian for "my daughter"—to honor his familial legacy.
Today, Chef Boudouvas puts a contemporary spin on traditional dishes from the Boot, which feature handmade whole-wheat pasta and market-fresh fish and meats. Like the airborne missiles at a bad comedy show, the restaurant’s weekly specials depend on what local produce is in season. Regular events enhance the restaurant's homelike ambiance, including weekly jazz performances and monthly wine dinners.
