Winston’s Market

In our dreams, the refrigerator is always packed with edibles both savory and sweet, and deciding what to have for dinner is a matter of choosing which appealing option will please us the very most tonight. Winston’s Market, a cheerful deli/café full of well-made treats to eat on the premises or take home, comes close to being that dream kitchen. What’ll it be—a little dish of roasted beets with goat cheese and almonds? A turkey and fig sandwich with caramelized onions? Maybe a salad—for $6.95, you can get one custom built to your specifications; add grilled meat or fish for a few bucks more (chicken is $3, salmon or skirt steak $5). Want quiche, or maybe some tasty chicken sausage bread pudding, heated up (not in a microwave)? No problem. From 3 to 6 p.m., about five entrée specials are available, including, recently, a terrifically juicy cheeseburger with fries ($6.50) and made-on-the-premises goat cheese ravioli with spicy red pepper sauce ($9). Carrot cake, brownies, and fancy ice-cream sandwiches make fine finishes; wine and beer round out the offerings. Take the kids and relax while someone else satisfies their every whim, for a change. 3440 N. Southport Ave.; 773-327-6400. –Joanne Trestrail
