Eat Here
A contemporary Greek restaurant with a lovely vibe, this is a must-add to your restaurant list! Andros Taverna has been featured in numerous publications from Condé Nast to Esquire, and received a Reader's Choice Award from the Chicago Tribune. Not to mention they have a fabulous wine list!

However, one of the great things aside from the food itself is that you really feel their love for community, especially thru some of the fundraisers they've been a part of, including but not limited to hosting Pausing for a Cause just earlier this year, in collaboration with another Chicago restaurant Kasama (a Chicago bakery and the 1st modern Filipino inspired restaurant to receive a Michelin star in the World). The event helps support suicide prevention nonprofit organization Vibrant Emotional Health, who helps reach people through education and support services like the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Reservations are suggested. Andros Taverna in located in Logan Square Chicago.
