After the Ride: Local Favorites

Rootstock Delicious food to pair with an impressive liquor selection or wines from around the world.
Bite Café Try the mashbrown from our 100 Best list: The search for the perfect hash browns ends at Bite, where a patty of skin-on potato mash is always fried to a golden crisp.
Parson's Chicken & Fish I just watched a server here pick her butt.
Fatso's Last Stand Try the Mac and Cheese
Fifolet Loved all of the dishes we tried, especially the honey-crusted corn bread with cayenne streusel. And beignets of course. Great cocktails as well.
Handlebar This biker bar (bikes not motorcycles) in Wicker Park specializes in vegetarian fare.
2311 W North Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 384-9546
Kasia's Polish Delicatessen Pierogi lovers unite! While these polish treats are Kasia's most popular star, delicious Polish food of all varieties can be found here---just like in our sister city of Warsaw.
Smoke Daddy Best mac & cheese.
Mana Food Bar All vegitarian, creative and delicious food.
Wasabi Awesome staff and reasonably priced food have made me a fan!
Big Star Try the michelada from our 100 Best list: We know it contains Tecate, Cholula and Valentina hot sauces, and Maggi. Oh, and we’re certain it's delicious, alleviates hangovers & might just cure cancer.
1531 N Damen Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 235-4039
Dove's Luncheonette Enchilada with a Fried Egg was awesome, so was the Pozole.
1545 N Damen Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 645-4060
Irazu I'm a bit milkshake crazy, so I always get an oatmeal & banana shake. Always.
Stan's Donuts & Coffee Must try their biscoff donut. Best ever!!!
1560 N Damen Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 360-7386
Yuzu Sushi and Robata Grill Oh yeah and its BYOB just so you know.
Antique Taco ...or as I like to call it, Etsy Taco.
Piece The crispy pies hold a lot of weight, so after you choose your pizza style—red, white or New Haven plain—start picking toppings. (If you’re really going New Haven–style, try one with clams and bacon.)
1927 W North Ave, Chicago IL — (773) 772-4422
Flo get there early for brunch on the weekends, enjoy coffee on the house while you wait
Uncle Mike's Place Try the Filipino breakfast!
1700 W Grand Ave, Chicago IL — (312) 226-5318
Coalfire Great pizza. Awesome staff. Highly recommended.
