If you're looking for good food friendly staff at a reasonable price you're at the right place. Close to the McCormick Place you will not find anywhere better. I will recommend any of the fish dishes or the roasted chicken. The lemonade or ginger beer...More

It seems like mostly a take-out place but there are a few tables to eat in. The food ranges from Cajun to East Indian to Caribbean. The portions were more than generous. Try the ginger beer as a beverage.

First, this is basically two restaurants, a sit down side and a take out side that has a few tables. We ate at the take out side. Second, by the name you would expect an Italian place, but it's a chicken shack with a few...More

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park

Family owned and operated since 1982, Chef Luciano provides a wide assortment of food from which to choose. All of our items are made in house and made to order. Although we are a counter service restaurant, we are nothing like your typical fast food restaurant.
