East Rogers Park, Chicago’s north-most neighborhood, could be mistaken for a vacation town with its proximity to Lake Michigan, gorgeous beaches, tons of parks and people out and about enjoying all kinds of outdoor activities (during summertime, anyway). But those who live here can and do get down to business—in the immediate area—and by jumping on the CTA’s Red Line and arriving in Chicago’s Loop in only 25 minutes. It’s that close, and far and away a highly sought-after neighborhood for housing.
You could call this thriving area “everything that is not Rogers Park,” but a more accurate description might be the “section of Rogers Park that lies east of Clark Street on the far north side of Chicago.”
As a real plus, this neighborhood is remarkably multi-cultural. Among the more than 60,000 residents, more than 80 languages are spoken. At the Rogers Park Baptist Church, the congregation is comprised of immigrants from 21 countries representing five continents. And only two words need to be spoken when it comes to education: “Loyola University.”
Ethnic Food Emporium Naturally, with the amazing mix of cultures, you’d expect—and you get—a vast array of ethnic foods and flavors to choose from in this neighborhood. For great fare in East Rogers Park, park yourself at A Taste of Peru on Clark Street or Las Islas for Mexican. For Middle Eastern, there’s Masouleth and down home good eats at the American Chicken and Fish Shack. It’s all topped off at the Toham African Restaurant on Devon. Mike’s favorite for burgers Revival Social Club on Granville and Moody’s Pub on Broadway. For more information on dining, check out www.explorechicago.org or www.chicago.menupages.com
