“A+ Andersonville”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

You must give this neighborhood a walk through. Plan to take your time to sample the little Swedish restaurants (especially for breakfast) and visit the shops. Almost a little step back in time.

“One of Chicago's great neighborhoods”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

This neighborhood on the north side abounds with great restaurants interesting shops and boutiques great bakeries and coffee houses. Unique to Andersonville is the absence of national chains and the diversity of food and shopping offerings. Theatre dance comedy clubs are all to be found here. Lively but not congested great bars for late night and dont miss the Neo Futurium for improv comedy

Reviewed December 24, 2012

Years ago we every week dined in a Peruvian restaurant. Did not do much else except buy food in a deli occasionally.

“Great Shopping & Dining”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I've lived in Edgewater for the last 12 years, which is just north of Andersonville (walking distance for most).

I've explored it many times and have eaten many a great meal here. There are many shops to explore (The Galleria is one of my favorites...it has many local artisans selling there wares on THREE floors...it's a great place to find some unique items), as well as restaurants.

Most of the best attractions are between Foster (5200 North) and Hollywood (5700 North), but there are a few noteworthy shops/restaurants above & below those streets.

Some great places to eat: Reza's, Andie's (both Middle Eastern), M. Henry (eclectic American fare, lots of organic items, fresh food!), George's Ice Cream/Desserts (YUM), Hamburger Mary's (I prefer Burger Philosophy on Bryn Mawr/Clark), Calo (great pasta dishes!), Jin Ju (fantastic Korean), A Taste of Heaven (don't just go for the desserts, the food is tasty as well), Icosium Kafe (ALGERIAN crepes...thicker than French), are among some of my favorites.

GREAT place to people watch, VERY gay/gay friendly. Worth a visit.
