Uncommon Ground, on Devon Street in Wrigleyville, became a bastion for sustainability in Chicago 20 years ago, way back before local and organic were fashionable. The custom-designed blonde wood bar glows with good cheer, and with the fireplace crackling, you'd swear you just arrived home from a long time spent away. Owners Helen and Michael Cameron are caretakers at the original Uncommon Ground and its kid brother—the newer Uncommon Ground on Clark Street in Edgewater. Product is seasonal, locally produced, family farmed, and organic whenever possible. Chef Justin Martin, who heads the kitchen in Wrigleyville, puts out dishes are that are homey, loving, and honest-to-goodness good for you.

  • Steamed East Coast Mussels, Jones Peppered Bacon, Brussels Sprouts, Sun Dried Tomatoes and White Wine-Roasted Garlic Butter
