A true neighborhood restaurant, the small Oak Lawn spot is big on urban charm, but its food is always farm fresh. Brunch on blueberry pancakes or veggie-packed risotto. Make a dinner of seafood pappardelle or veal Milanese. Ninny’s Salad (fried okra, tomatoes, scallions tossed with vinaigrette) is a crowd-pleaser.
