Chicago native, Marisa Paolillo spent years cooking in Bombay (Mumbai), India, and her efforts resulted in Mango Pickle achieving the Michelin Bib Gourmand designation in 2018 and 2019. When you want to go beyond Butter Chicken (you can order a grand charcoal-grilled, tomato gravy rendition here, too), get to Edgewater and be amazed at sublime interpretations of Indian cuisine. Choose a six-course prix fixe menu: one with meat and vegetarian dishes and the other strictly vegetarian. Lemon rasam soup with lentils and veg is sumptuous yet light and spoon lamb flavored with cumin and coriander is a melt-in-your-mouth bite. Items change reflecting seasonality. If you're going a la carte at the "Ind-Spired Bistro," order anything with homemade paneer cheese and the slow-rise garlic naan. Colorful and classy decor plus an eclectic mix of Indian and American music set the scene for a satisfying, sensual trip to the Indian subcontinent.
- Indian: "Gin is the spirit of choice at Mango Pickle, so live it up with the "Flight of Fancy" gin trio served with ice and tonic on the side."
- Best for Indian Because: Michelin Bib Gourmand for 2018 and 2019, Mango PIckle offers a sublime and unpretentious culinary trip to the Indian subcontinent.
