About Arcadia Terrace

On a map, Arcadia Terrace takes on a perfectly square shape: Peterson, California, Bryn Mawr, and Western Avenues mark its borders. You can't box in this small northwestern neighborhood, though. It's home to a population of people who have created an eclectic culinary scene and a lively culture.

Around Arcadia Terrace

Arcadia Terrace used to be home to a handful of high-rise hotels. Developers have begun tearing these properties down in favor of more modern condominiums. As with many other Chicago neighborhoods, you can probably find a duplex, single-family home, or courtyard-style condo within the confines of Arcadia Terrace.

This is where Arcadia Terrace stands out from the crowd: the neighborhood has a great culinary scene in restaurants that aren't pretentious or pricey. Walk down Lincoln Avenue or Peterson Avenue to find authentic enclaves that serve food from around the world. You'll likely find Korean barbecue, sushi, Middle Eastern fare, and hearty Eastern European plates.

The ongoing facelift in Arcadia Terrace has inspired people interested in Ravenswood and Andersonville to look here instead. You also might see students making their way to the sought-after Northside College Preparatory High School on weekdays. Otherwise, in such an eclectic area, there's always something new to find.

Arcadia Terrace might not be as bustling as a downtown neighborhood full of clubs, but it certainly has its charms. You can easily find a cold beer or cocktail along Lincoln Avenue or Peterson Avenue, where activity in the area centers. Arcadia Terrace also has no shortage of karaoke bars.

Your morning might start with a cup of coffee or brunch plate stacked with eggs and toast from your favorite cafe. After that, you'll have all of the fuel you need to explore the West Ridge Nature Preserve, which sits just outside of Arcadia Terrace if you cross east over Western Avenue.
