Be it because of the influence of the world renowned University of Chicago or the complicated history of the South Side leading to changing waves of influence, there are few neighborhoods in Chicago with a restaurant scene as varied as Hyde Park‘s. From modest to opulent, there’s a lot to choose from. Here’s a list of our favorites.
This cafeteria style restaurant is a Hyde Park institution with legendary breakfast service. Don’t let the plastic trays at Valois fool you; many entrées are made to order. Murals of the neighborhood and city cover the restaurant’s walls, and the mixture of neighborhood residents and college students let you know you’ve stumbled upon something off the tourist track.
