What You Need to Know About the Chicago Dining Scene This Week

Another Green City Market, barbecue tacos in (where else?) Logan Square, and the final chance to vote in Best of Chicago.

Barbecue tacos in a Wild West-looking tavern, plus some cocktails and specialty food shopping—that’s what’s on tap at the General (2528 N. California Ave., Logan Square, 773-698-8754), named for neighborhood namesake General John A. Logan.

The fresh seafood at Wixter Market (2110 W. Division St., Wicker Park, 312-248-2800) gets super-frozen ASAP after it’s caught, but they’ve also got plenty of canned sardines, mussels, and other oceanic creatures if you’re too hungry to wait for your fish to thaw.


Got strong opinions to share on your favorite Indian food or steak house? The voting for this year’s Best of Chicago Readers’ Choice award winners is open until tomorrow at 5 p.m. Go here to write in your picks for your favorite dining and drinking establishments.

Starting this weekend, the Green City Market is adding another outpost to its farmers-market empire: On the second Sunday of each month from now through October, they’ll be operational at a third site in a lot behind Soho House (113–125 N. Green St., West Loop) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The other two markets are the original in Lincoln Park on Wednesdays and Saturdays and a satellite in the Fulton Market District on Saturdays.

And in this week’s installment of What They’re Saying About Us Now, Washington Post dining critic Tom Sietsema swung through Chicago for his latest installment in his exploration of the country’s top food cities. He had plenty of good things to say, particularly heaping love on our Mexican food, innovative chef-driven spots, and barbecue.
