It doesn’t get much hipper than Logan Square. In addition to seeing big-time rises in restaurants and bars in recent years, this neighborhood teems with tree-lined boulevards and a bustling and creative restaurant and bar scene. Milwaukee Avenue in particular has become a major artery for quality food and drink. While there’s no shortage of coffee shops, Logan Square is about more than caffeine. Here are Eater Chicago’s best best for eat and drink in one of Chicago’s most interesting dining destinations.
