Many Delicious Greek Things in Wicker Park

Dox Quality Greek, a way-above-average, fast-casual new Greek spot, is now open in Wicker Park. Here’s how to use it:

1) For lunchtime pork shoulder pitas.

2) For casual dinners over chili-bourbon drinks and beef short rib kebabs.

3) For honey-habanero chicken wings.

The wings can happen whenever.

The Focus Here Is Meatballs

CHANCE OF MEATBALLS

The Focus Here Is Meatballs

Bar Roma is a rustic new Italian tavern in Andersonville. Outside, it’s terribly cold. Inside, there are five kinds of meatballs—including pork belly meatballs and lamb meatball sliders—plus Roman-style gnocchi and, once they get their liquor license, all kinds of Italian cocktails. In conclusion: inside > outside.
