Community Tavern, nestled in the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago, is a modern American restaurant owned and operated by husband and wife team, Joey & Brenna Beato. Our dream has always been to run our very own elevated 'mom & pop' restaurant in the neighborhood we call home. Chef Joey combines French & Italian technique with inspirations from Japanese & Korean cuisine. His food is a reflection of his upbringing, professional experiences and desire to take care of people with his cooking.

Our team is small and tight-knit, feeling more like family than colleagues.…

From the arrival to the departure, the service was excellent. We started with the smoked cauliflower soup with a chili oil on top. Phenomenal. Our friends ordered the lemon grass soup, not as good.
The scallion pancakes our a must, the mushroom salad too vinegary...More
