American | West Loop, Chicago

The restaurant was great, complementary parking lot was a nice feature. Liked the opportunity to walk through the greenhouse with fresh herbs, plants and edible flowers. Our waitress , Lizzy, was amazing. She did an excellent job in describing everything and making appropriate recommendations. Noisy, we were in the front dining area, maybe the rear dining room is quieter. Next time, will try the outdoor eating area. More

Nita's Gumbo
Nita's Gumbo

Our slogan “Taste The Chase” derives from the clientele’s addictive response to the special arrangement seasoning that cause people from all manner of custom and cultures to come back begging for more. They can’t get enough of Anita’s Gumbo. Anita’s dedication to family pride and food inspired her descendants to open this restaurant, Nita’s Gumbo, in her honor. For them, it represents the love and tireless sacrifices Anita made for the sake of family. It embodies 25 years of Gumbo gratitude passed down through generations, but most important, it’s a realization of Anita’s dream to share the taste and introduce the chase to all of you in ChicagoMore

Discover Chicago

Winds whipping off Lake Michigan are no match for hungry Chicagoans in pursuit of the ultimate burger and a respite from brutal winters. Historically at the heart of the meat industry, the city’s slaughterhouses now house tony Michelin-starred restaurants, and deep-dish is just one of countless takes on Italian American staples in town. Arguably the American capital of molecular gastronomy, Chicago is at once a trendsetter and the capital of casual. Calling all carnivores.
