Sew Cute in Chicago vol. 3

Happy Friday friends! Welcome to another edition of Sew Cute in Chicago. Keep reading to see what new food and restaruants I've been trying..... 

Ina Mae Tavern | The new kid on the block is Ina Mae Tavern. This new New Orleans inspired eatery is maybe my new favorite Wicker Park place. For a starter we got the corn fritters, we wanted the seafood mac & cheese but they were sold out for the night. Then for dinner I got the fried chicken that was coated in honey paired with a warm biscuit. My wannabe southern girl was singing inside of me during this meal. We finished it off with the chocolate cake dessert. Next time I'm going for the beignets! This place is the cutest little date night spot and has a cool drink menu.

Mario's Italian Lemonade | This past weekend we took a trip to Taylor St. near my boyfriends work to check out this famous Italian ice joint. We tried watermelon and lime and they were so very refreshing! Watermelon was a seasonal flavor along with honeydew and more. This place is nestled in a super cute area of Little Italy that I for sure want to go and explore more. Stay tuned....

Parson's Chicken & Fish | This hip place in Logan Square is a chicken heaven. Fried chicken and fish graces the menu and it did not disappoint. I opted for the fried chicken sandwich which was topped with cheese, coleslaw, and pickles. It was very tasty. Plus the house made chips were great too!

Old places but trying new things... 

Goddess & the Baker | My go-to coffee spot in the loop area is Goddess & the Baker. It is right near Macy's State Street, where I go for work some times, so I always stop in for a drink and to do some computer work. I've always gotten hot lattes but this time I got an iced latte. It was sooooooo good! Best iced latte ever. I don't know why people go to Starbucks when there are so many great local coffee spots in the city. It even came with a cute lil pastry thing which was very tasty as well. 10/10 recommend Goddess & the Baker over Starbucks any day!

The Hampton Social | I took some of my co-workers to The Hampton Social after we were working our trade show at the Merchandise Mart. It is just minutes away so it made for the perfect spot! We tried the King Crab dip which was amazing! Then we got some of my old favorites like the fried calamari and I opted for the lobster roll prepared with butter. Although this is thought of as the basic betch place of Chicago it really does have great food. Don't knock it till you try it people.  

Bub City | Again, another one of my favorite places in River North Bub City. I went with co-workers after trade show set up and we got the BBQ nachos to start which were amazing. Then I got the brisket which was just so tender and delicious it was amazing, per usual. I cannot recommend Bub City enough! Fun atmosphere and good food. 

Maple & Ash | Our team at work took our client to Maple & Ash for dinner and it was incredible as always. We ordered I kid you not 11 side dishes everything from mac & cheese to veggies. Naturally I skipped the veggies. As Ron Swanson would say, "Would you like a salad" "Since I am not a rabbit no I do not". The mac & cheese rocked my world though. Holy yum! Then the whipped potatoes were equally as dreamy. Then my steak was great as usual. If you are looking for a splurge dinner this place takes the cake for me! 

What places should I try next? Let me know in the comments!
