- Colombian is the specialty in this cozy little North-side restaurant. The name comes from the town in the well-known novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García-Márquez. Much like Márquez, owner Leo Suarez strives to bring Colombian culture to the rest of the world, and Chicago in particular. The menu contains several varieties of empanadas, such as Carne Molida (seasoned ground beef), as well as sides like Yuca Frita (fried yucca) and Plantano Maduro (sweet plantain wedges). Many also come for the Colombian coffee, which is delicious—and, as a bonus, fair-trade. - Gina Rosemellia
