Contemporary American | Evanston, North Suburbs

Hearth consistently offers delicious, innovative food at a price much lower than one would pay in Downtown Chicago. We enjoyed the heirloom tomato salad, cauliflower appetizer, salmon appetizer, leg of lamb, and duck. All included interesting sides that complemented the entree. The ice cream desserts were a great way to end the meal, and of a reasonable portion size so you don't feel as if you've over-indulged. More

We are already looking forward to returning! Wait staff was professional and knowledgeable. Pom 75 cocktail and wine flights were excellent. The dishes that stood out for us were the Butter Salad, Lobster Bisque and Rushing Waters Trout. The Seared Scallops and Parmesan Risotto were excellent but barely warm (according to my husband). I thought the risotto was fantastic but the scallops needed a lot more caramelization. The pecan tart was very good. More

For large groups, this place is super easy to enjoy a nice meal at! There are vegetarian options, I made my bowl with tofu. The prices are a little steep but the food was very good, especially since I could choose what I wanted and how much of it I wanted. Make sure to fill your bowl to the top and get a piece of their bread! It's amazing. Also there's a student discount. More

Discover Evanston

In suburban Evanston, you'll find one of Chicagoland's most noteworthy dishes: stuffed pizza. A deep-dish pan is filled with layers upon layers of toppings, sauce and cheese and is covered with an extra stretch of dough before baking. The price on stuffed pizza can be cause for a bit of sticker shock when compared to everyday pizza pies, but as a college town, Evanston has plenty of options more suitable for those on a budget. Two other Windy City favorites, Italian beef sandwiches and all-beef hot dogs on poppy seed buns, are noteworthy examples. Those looking for a more refined dining experience will find that the menus of table-service restaurants feature Midwestern comfort dishes built around meat, cheese and an assortment of farm-fresh vegetables.
