  • The best restaurant in Armour Square Chicago: Lawrence's Fisheries

    Lawrence's Fisheries

    2120 S Canal St
    It's amazing that this place exists so close to downtown. It's fried fish heaven with frogs legs, $1.45 clam strips, fried oysters, scallops, and boiled shrimp. All that with views of the skyline, intriguing industrial and river bridge panoramas, and of a good sized hanging shark.

  • Scoops


    608 W 31st St
    A deceptively old fashioned neighborhood ice cream parlor offering homemade ice cream in a non-old fashioned variety of flavors. They also happen to have free WiFi and homemade cannoli.

  • Gio's Cafe & Deli

    Gio's Cafe & Deli

    2724 S Lowe Ave
    Some of Chicago's best Italian is hidden in a tiny checkerboard tablecloth deli, more resembling a grocery store than a restaurant, hidden further still in the residential streets of Bridgeport. It's also, as you might expect, a steal of a bargain. Delicious Italian pastas, chicken, and panini.

  • Ricobene's


    252 W 26th St
    M-Th 11AM-midnight, F Sa 11AM-1:30AM, Su 11AM-11:30PM. $4-12. With one exception the food here is uninspired, but the atmosphere is extreme Bridgeport, and it's a great place to bring kids. The exception is the Italian breaded steak sandwich, yet another neighborhood "delicacy," which it does better than anyone. There's nothing subtle about it — a big ol' breaded steak on chewy Italian bread, optionally drenched in red sauce, plus cheese, and hot or sweet giardinera. Don't order the king size unless you like to view your meal as a challenge.

  • Han 202

    Han 202

    605 W 31st St
    High class, trendy dining on the cheap! The ethnic makeup of this section of town might fool you, but "Asian Fusion" is about as unlikely as a Utah brewpub. Bridgeport is a decidedly non-trendy neighborhood. But the neighborhood's new Han 202 has taken off, and its chef's cooking has attracted favorable comparisons to some of the flashiest and most esteemed in the city. The rave reviews are no doubt reinforced by the extraordinary deal — $25 for a fixed price five-course meal, plus BYOB with no corkage fee.

  • Triple Crown Restaurant

    Triple Crown Restaurant

    2217 S Wentworth Ave
    Chicago Chinese Food, Triple Crown Restaurant offers Hong Kong cuisine in the heart of Chicago's Chinatown.

  • Carbón

  • Three Happiness

    Three Happiness

    209 W Cermak Rd
  • Seven Treasures

    2312 S Wentworth Ave
    Su-Th 11AM-2AM, F Sa 11AM-2:30AM. $3.50-10. Seven Treasures has a huge, if uninteresting, interior and late hours, but the reason to come here is for Cantonese noodle soup. Anyone who has spent time in China, and hankers for the noodle soup they had there will not be disappointed. The Hong Kong-style barbecue menu is worthwhile.
    Armour Square
  • Cantonesia

    204 W Cermak Rd
    Su-Th 11:30AM-11PM, F-Su 11:30AM-midnight. $8-15. An 60-year-old establishment offering serving adequate Cantonese cuisine and much trumpeted Mai Tais. Stick to the noodle dishes and the hot and sour soup.
    Armour Square
  • Ken-Kee Restaurant

    2129 S China Pl
    One of the best bets in the Chinatown Marketplace with an extraordinarily long menu offering Cantonese preparations of virtually any creature or vegetable. It's hard to get a table on weekend nights.
    Armour Square
  • Phoenix

    2131 S Archer Ave
    Dim Sum: M-F 9AM-3PM, Sa Su 8AM-3PM; Dinner Su-Th 5PM-9:30PM, Sa Su 5PM-10:30PM. $18-30. The Phoenix is the gold standard in Chicago dim sum, and with good reason. It's the one of the three top dim sum establishments that actually has nice decor, which, naturally, you pay for. Unlike the other good dim sum options, Phoenix uses the ever-popular wheeled cart method of delivery. The one downside to Phoenix is that it is better known, and therefore a good deal more crowded (and expensive) than most Chinatown restaurants — it pays to arrive either early or late to avoid the crowd.
