    Order the burger and you’ll be rewarded with a patty so juicy, melted cheddar so gooey and Dijonaise so drippy they make a mockery of the thin brioche bun trying to keep it all together. Read more

    At Pleasant House Bakery you can get Blue-collar English food with a farm-to-table sensibility. Try the chicken balti pie, premium pasty, or deluxe gravy chips. Read more

    The steak-and-ale captures carrot-laden pot roast in buttery crust, the chicken Balti channels India by way of Britain with heady curry spices, and the mushroom-kale is a good argument to go meat-free Read more

    Had the kale and spinach pie with chutney and it was delicious. The space is quaint with a rustic, cabin feel. I must admit that they're a bit pricey for the portions, but worth the quality food.

    Chief among the genuine farm-to-table movement is Art and Chelsea Jackson’s understated Bridgeport spot, where seasonal produce comes from Pleasant Farms, a network of small farms in and near Chicago. Read more

    Try the mushroom and kale pie from our 100 Best list: This is one of our favorite openings of the year: It’s understated, authentic and charming, just like this individual savory pie.

    First-time visitors may question how much to order, but be advised that one of the hefty pies and a side dish such as the Scotch egg ($4) or deluxe gravy fries ($5) will test your waistband. Read more

    Where else can you get Brit-style flaky, buttery crust pies filled with beef, chicken or mushrooms and kale? BYO or order it to be delivered to Maria's next door and get a drink at the bar. Read more

    Everything that Art and Chelsea Jackson serve is first-rate, from chips dripping with cheddar and gravy scattered with skirt steak to steamy mushroom and kale pies flakier than Gary Busey.

    The steak and ale pie is delicious as well as the mushroom and kale pie. They have fish and chips on Fridays which are also pretty good.

    No place in Chicago serves English pies that are as flakey and filling as these. But just about everything here is just as good.
