The Stained Glass Bistro

1735 Benson
Evanston, IL 60201


This kitchen’s forays from Japan to Mexico and everywhere in between are largely successful. Witness the hefty herb-flecked crab cake atop an arepa, the Thai-spiced beef salad, and the terrific house-made veal and pork pâté en terrine. A bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin benefits from red mole, and on the lighter side, there’s tuna three ways: tartare, sashimi, and seared. Smart wine list offers good values and appealing flights.
