THE INFATUATION: THE BEST PLACES TO EAT IN EVANSTON

There are a lot of reasons you might find yourself in Evanston. It’s home to Northwestern University, but there’s also a very good chance that your friend who just had a baby is house-shopping there - probably while you read this. Or maybe you fell asleep on the Purple Line and woke up at the Davis stop, and now you’re hungry. No matter why you’re here, you need to eat something. And while this suburb has about 8,437 restaurants that are perfectly fine, these 11 are the best.

Found Kitchen & Social House

Evanston
1621 Chicago Ave

Eating at Found is like hanging out in a funky but nice furniture store. Meaning it’s full of mismatched chairs and tables, table lamps, and desks decorated with vases. The menu is also eclectic, with food ranging from stinging nettle flatbreads to caviar, but the food is solid, and this place is a great option for a low-key dinner (or just drinks and some appetizers). Definitely check it out if you want nothing more than to eat and drink in a living room without worrying about using coasters.
