The city may have put a stop to the St. Patty's day parade on the South Side last year, but Atwood Café is bringing back that Irish pride, even if it is in a more civilized way. This month they will feature a "Beverly" menu to pay homage to the South Side neighborhood known for its strong Irish-American heritage.
Chef Derek Simcik took inspiration from some of the Beverly mainstays such as Quigley's Pub and the Chicago Gaelic Park to reinterpret Irish classics like bangers and mash and fish n' chips, adding his own New American twist. The three course prix-fixe will run from 8-10 p.m. every evening in March in addition to their regular menu.
If Irish food isn't your thing, and you prefer the cuisine of other Chicago neighborhoods, you are in luck. The Beverly dinner is a part of the "Looping in the Neighborhoods" series to celebrate the cultural diversity of Chicago. Up next is Ukrainian Village in April, followed by Pilsen in May (for Cinco De Mayo) and Taylor Street in June.
