Luella’s Southern Kitchen This restaurant could very well be in the South. Shrimp and grits taste like those of Mr. B’s Bistro in New Orleans, and buttermilkfried chicken thighs are expertly prepared, served atop yeasty waffles.
Open: Lunch and dinner Tuesday-Friday, brunch and dinner Saturday-Sunday. Prices: Entrees $7-$15. 4609 N. Lincoln Ave., 773-961-8196. — Kevin Pang
