Run by 2005 Chicago Rising Star Chefs Jason Hammel and Amalea Tshilds, Lula is the consummate neighborhood spot—open pretty much all day, with a casual vibe and excellent, reasonably priced food crafted from local produce. Despite their lack of formal culinary training, this couple turns out delicious comfort food that you could eat every day and be satisfied. Breakfast is served until 2:30 on weekdays, and Monday night they offer a 3-course farm dinner for $28. In keeping with the laidback theme, Pastry Chef Kate Neumann prepares updated, homespun desserts that recall sweets at a (sophisticated) grandmother’s table.
