The 2018 Jean Banchet Award for Best Neighborhood Restaurant in Chicago, Daisies is a vegetable-driven and pasta focused restaurant featuring fresh ingredients from Tim Frillman's Frillman Farms. Tim is the brother of Daisies executive chef/owner Joe Frillman, so you know the veg is the best. Between the rustic, seasonal menu and heated al fresco dining on the plant-filled patio, the Logan Square eatery embodies the comfort of a crisp fall night. Your Polish granny never made galumpkis like this: fermented cabbage stuffed with a barley and beef tongue mixture. Chicken fried rutabaga surprises the palate and the polenta waffle made with Iroquois corn meal and studded with pork lardo and a smear of pumpkin jam is all about autumn. Pastas go deliciously vegetarian (papardelle with mushroom ragu) and rich and meaty - gnocchi with pheasant sugo, sauerkraut, bacon and apples. Another plus: Daisies boasts an extensive no-waste fermentation program.
- Best Restaurants for Fall: "Try the Coldbrook Berry cocktail - a smooth bourbon drink with locally made aronia berry liquor and a housemade cinnamon tincture's warm finish."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants for Fall Because: Inspired by the Midwest and a champion of a root-to-fruit philosophy, Daisies offers a rustic menu and a heated patio for comfy al fresco dining.
