Where To Eat
The restaurants here fit well with the residential scene: more relaxed compared to the rest of the city and giving the food a special neighborhood touch. Options are diverse, ranging from Mexican to pizza and Chinese to traditional American fare. The spots in Belmont Cragin are generally best suited for dine-in customers, and the owners are happy to accommodate a crowd on the weekends.
Friday Night Fun
Belmont Cragin tends to be quieter than the rest of the city, but it still has its local watering holes. Stop by one of the nearby pubs for an imported pint or a sports bar to watch the game with friends. Late night adventurers may also check out the clubs and lounges along the northern border of the neighborhood for music and dancing.
The Perfect Sunday
The neighborhood's many parks offer the perfect place for Sunday activities. Riis Park in the southwest and Hanson Park in the southeast both offer expansive fields, tennis courts, swimming pools, and walking trails, providing ample a space for leisure and recreation for active residents. For those needing to run a weekend errand or two, stop by Brickyard Mall for its convenient cluster of shops.
