Bento boxes at the Bento Box

Chef-owner Rick Spiros turns his catering kitchen into this unassuming, 12-seat BYOB Wednesday–Saturday. Of the four main courses on offer, two or three are bento boxes, each of the five segments filled with dynamic renditions of Asian favorites: subtle curries fragrant with herbs, flavor-packed beef bulgogi with housemade kimchi and more. Spiros flips the wisdom of Lunchables on its head by demonstrating there’s no better place for satisfying, complex and superfresh food than a box. 2246 W Armitage Ave (773-278-3932).
