    One of my favourite late night eat spots. Half price sushi after 11pm. Great atmosphere (lively w/ good music), quick service with a club in the basement. Never disappoints. Try the jugs of mojito.

    Saturday brunch, 50's, 60's music provided a nice atmosphere. Wish the menu mentioned the fish tacos were build your own. When built they were a little underwhelming.

    Stars like Josh Duhamel and the Glee cast load up on their crunchy tuna rolls and famous carrot cake–only to dance off the calories downstairs at Sub51. Tip: Make a reservation or expect a big wait.

    One of the best all-around restaurants in Chicago. The staff was friendly and welcomed folks in street clothes or all dressed up. If it's your first visit, they may offer you a free dessert!

    The crowd is as varied as the eats—tourists, lunching ladies and local working stiffs rub elbows—and everyone seems content with the large portions. Braised pork tacos and plump maki are both hits. Read more

    While definitely a scene for near North Side singles, this edgy-looking environs also boasts an eclectic menu. Come for the company, stay for the sushi. And of course the usual cache of cool cocktails

    This is quickly becoming our go to restaurant. They have everything. The nachos are awesome! They are HUGE! A half order will feed 2. Tacos (fish or braised short rib) are great!

    Great music and beer, the ahi tuna burger was delicious, and since we were first timers we had to try the carrot cake. The service was amazing!

    I love the chill vibe for late night food & drinks! Music playing but I can still hear my friends without yelling at each other...hub punch and miso-glazed sushi are on point. 😍

    The Melman boys set out with the premise that they’d create a restaurant just like one they’d want to hang out in and build a menu of dishes they like to eat when they go out. Read more

    Hub 51 serves up hearty, thick, brick-red chili that's loaded with ground turkey, black beans and kidney beans. Pasilla chilies add heat and smoky depth without overdoing the spice. Read more

    My go-to spot for lunch in river north. For vegetarians: chips and guac app (delic),Brussels sprout salad, sweet potato roll and veggie burger. All solid choices.

    Pomegranate mojitos? Don't mind if I do. Also, if you're feeling like setting your diet aside, the nachos are insanely delicious. They're also enough to feed a small family.

    Hub51 and their "hidden gem" nightclub downstairs - Sub51 - have taken over Friday nights in Chicago. But make your bottle service reservations in advance because the list at Sub51 fills up fast! Read more

    Awesome sushi! Get the sweet potato and the spicy shrimp & king crab. Order a pink moscato to sip on. Finish with a decadent slice of carrot cake! Great music too.

    Go for the juicy pulled pork tacos. Both corn tortillas and roasted tomato salsa are house-made, and the plate is heaped with black beans, rice and spicy diced tomatoes. Read more

    One of my favorite Chicago establishments. Nachos, tacos, cornbread, ahi, turkey chili, guacamole...all good!! Weekend nights at the bar can get craaazay...
  • Zach S.
    Obsessed with their chips and guacamole (has corn at the bottom)! I did not like the salmon sushi roll. The punch will treat you well - totally recommend.

    No wait for Sunday brunch! Delish apple baked French toast, breakfast tacos and more. Heck, show up in PJs and get 10% off. Hurry, before the secret gets out & the line forms out the door.

    Save room for dessert. Carrot Cake would make you give up any diet your on; and don't be deterred "foam", after Peanut Butter Foam you may never be satisfied by peanut butter cups again.

    The Green Chili Cheeseburger here is just exceptional! Grated sharp cheddar, fire-roasted poblano chilies & chipotle aioli. They also have a decent beer list.

    The carrot cake is as good a they say. Started with the tempura battered shrimp tacos. Ended with a slice of heaven. With extra frosting.

    Order the Thai Tuna Basil, Cornbread, and Nachos (skip the chicken, add the crab). Randomness aside, its the meal dreams are made of.

    This is a great place for brunch on Sundays. Try the root vegetable hash, and if you are a carnivore, get a side of bacon.

    Tuna poke is pretty good. Waitress needs lessons in patience. Too busy to wait on one person with full attention.
