What would any local downtown be like without its independent restaurants? In a word, bland. No late-night dinners of chicken tikka masala, no more lunches from that one-of-a-kind sandwich shop and no more weekend brunches at the diner where the waitress knows how you like your eggs. From Main Street, U.S.A. to the city streets of Chicago, independent restaurants give our neighborhoods their charm while fueling our local economies.
