This quiet neighborhood, 10 convenient miles north of downtown Chicago, is definitely on the rise. It’s a great place to be and live with its cultural and dining diversity, great places to shop and more than its share of affordable housing. This middle-to-upper class haven has a proud history and you still see signs of its affluent past in historic mansions that are an elegant part of the neighborhood.
You’ve really got to appreciate the cultural kaleidoscope West Rogers Park offers with the city’s largest Orthodox Jewish, Pakistani and India populations. This area is a Mecca for amazing cuisines from around the world
Fine and Diverse Dining: For Indian cuisine, Devon is divine and where you’ll find many of the city’s top Indian and Pakistani restaurants. Dessert is also a specialty of the area. Check out King Sweets on Devon, Tohoora Sweets and Bakery and J.R. Dessert Bakery on Howard. Mike’s favorite hot dog joint since he was a child is still there: Wolfy’s on Peterson and California.
