NileGuide Expert Says:
Uncommon Ground supports local farmers, so the ingredients are always fresh and the menu changes every couple of weeks. Always delicious!
NileGuide Expert tip:
Make a reservation if you're coming in for dinner as it can get crowded especially if there's a performance. However, this place is normally wide open for brunch and lunch every day, so go right in!
As you enter Uncommon Ground, the beautiful, bright wooden interior seems to glow. After you get over the incredible warm décor, you'll see that their menu is replete with sustainable, locally sourced delicacies like fall egg scramble with bacon brussels sprouts, and swiss and tempura avocado tacos. Enjoy an agripolitan (cranberry-infused organic rain vodka, apple cider, chai-infused sweet vermouth, licor 43, and lemon, served up with an apple slice) and a portion of the proceeds is donated to Chicago Rarities Orchard. Take in work by local artists and performances by indie bands. In 2011, Uncommon Ground received the title of "Greenest Restaurant in the Country" from the Green Restaurant Association.
