Kitsch’n River North

by gastronomicbypass

Location: 600 W. Chicago

In one word – Approachable

Food – It’s sort of like diner food, but better. They capture the nostalgia of comfort food from yesteryear and serve it all day long. And I love it. Proof: You can have chicken and a waffle, gourmet mini burgers (my favorite!) or coconut crusted waffles.

Drink – They have their specialty drinks, but you really can’t beat the $1 PBRs. Particularly when you consider that the other bars in that neighborhood are at Motel and Japonais…not the cheap drink kind of joints.

Service – Very pleasant, other than that, not much to report.

Occasion – Ideal for brunch/dinner with friends. Large groups would be acceptable here. Maybe if you’ve been dating your special someone for a while, this would be a nice fun spot to try out, too.

Scene – This place is totally interactive. As you wait for your food, play with the Magic 8 ball or other retro toys on your table. Definite icebreaker if your dinner group is awkward.

Dress – Nothing formal is needed for this place. In the morning, brunch wear is acceptable. In the evening, jeans will work just fine.

Cost – Perhaps $15 – 20.

If you liked…, try – Kitsch’n on Roscoe (the sister restaurant, obvi), Nookies
