Usually the food and service is much better. Being that it was Mother's Day, it was slammed.

About the restaurant
The key to Indie Cafe’s success is simple cuisine, elegantly prepared. Chef Iggy Waranon's dishes feature a dynamic combination of savory Thai and simple Japanese cuisine, with an emphasis on the original flavor of the fresh ingredients. Fresh and seasonal fish is often touched by cilantro-infused oils, miso dressing, and Asian citrus for pop and personality. Indie Cafe's fun, casual, and modern Asian interior also lends itself to a comfortable and cozy night with friends. Before the rolls arrive, order up a Ginger or Lychee Martini to whet the appetite. Oh—and for an added bonus, they’re mere steps from the beach.Best New Restaurants, Chicago magazine

Nice change of pace. Not your standard Mexican. Good value for dollars.

Bucktown / Wicker Park
About the restaurant
100% Plant-Based, 100% Gluten-Free

Plant-based gluten-free restaurant in Wicker Park. We have always had the core belief of being as good to ourselves (and the earth) as possible, but as we grow, we have always wanted to do more. With this desire, we decided to open Bloom Plant Based kitchen. Not only is eating a more plant-based diet healthier and more forgiving to one’s body, but it is significantly better for the environment. However, with healthy plant-based options not being the popular choice, we know we have stiff competition. Therefore, our intention with Bloom is to focus on bringing flavorful, healthy, and affordable plant-based food to families while also being desirable and appealing to everyone regardless of their diet

The food and drinks were incredible. Bloom is by far the best plant-based food I’ve had in Chicago so far.

About the restaurant
We like to say that we are International Vegan Restaurant. That means our food is 100% plant based and Globally Inspired. We have a few American classics like homemade veggie burgers, mac and cheese and of course Nachos. However, we also have plenty of healthy options. Our Kitchen Manager specializes in creating comfort dishes from different cultures by making food that is hearty and flavorful, but still healthy. Many food items will have a focus on plants, rather than trying to mimic meat. Reading our menu is like traveling the globe with the different options we will have. Have a taste of Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Italy, Balkans and so much more! Brunch Menu is available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We were nominited for the best brunch in the country by VegOut Magazine and our soup was nominated as Best Soup of Chicago. We won Best Patio 2020 by North Commision. Can't wait to welcome you.

Yesterday was my first time eating at a plant-based restaurant and I'm so glad it was Kale my name. I felt so comfortable there because the staff was so friendly and welcoming. My oyster mushrooms wrap was seasoned to the Gods, baby. Let's just say there's nowhere I'd rather be.
