The Roscoe Village spin-off of the wildly popular Lincoln Park original, John’s Place dishes up a similar polyglot mix of comfort-food basics: hummus and veggies, carne asada with chipotle mashed potatoes, chicken pot pie. If only it did it a little bit better—in the past we've had sub-par versions of burgers and salmon. Still, desserts like a gooey toffee blondie and warm, solicitous servers go a long way. Note to stroller-pushers: Your dominance of this territory means no stink-eye from romancing tables of two.
