Since 2009, Bridgeport has accommodated Chicagoans’ growing interest in vegan and vegetarian foods. Nana offers its patrons both indoor and outdoor seating. However, after walking inside, the bright interior will make you wonder if your server seated your party outdoors anyway. The natural colors on the walls and the bright light coming in from the windows makes you feel as if you’re on a picnic.
