Ald. Ameya Pawar—Alderman of the 47th Ward
Gather. It's our favorite restaurant in Chicago. The cod and whipped ricotta is scrumtrulescent.
Rev. Billy’s Chop Shop. It’s where I got my first adult haircut. Rev. Billy’s great, too.
Bloom Yoga Studio. We took the Childbirth Class by Natalie—and my wife says she learned how to have a baby. The yoga classes are really fun and not intimidating and my wife gives a big thumbs up to their pre-natal and postpartum massages.
Urban Pooch. Our Pittie, Baby, can attest to the love she gets at her second home.
Baker Miller. I'll quote Homer Simpson: "Mmmm, (homemade) butter."
Co Co Vietnamese Sandwiches. The egg sandwich or the #4 is too good. I once ate there every day for a week.
Spacca Napoli. The anchovy salad is brilliant. So is the pizza.
The Book Cellar. This is where I picked up my brother-in-law and sister-in-law’s NYT bestselling books: The Sports Gene by David Epstein and Building a Better Teacher by Elizabeth Green.
Waters Community Garden. Father Earth, a.k.a. Pete Leki the Waters School ecology teacher, has created an incredible community garden and outdoor classroom which earned the school the White House Green Ribbon award.
