Around Dunning

Where To Eat

Dunning provides a blend of different food styles, including Mexican, Italian, sushi, and pizza. Many of the eateries are locally owned, so expect a true Chicago flavoring to any of your orders. The neighborhood is also the home of Eli's Cheesecake Factory, which sells baked goods around the world but makes their fresh items available in Dunning.

Friday Night Fun

Try a late dinner and drinks at one of the grills and sports bars that line Irving Park Road. Stick around for a long night of appetizers and game-watching if your team is playing. Otherwise, make a move towards the southern portion of the neighborhood to seek out one of the lounges or hidden nightclubs.

The Perfect Sunday

Take some classes or catch a daytime showing at one of the theater companies in the area, or receive some musical or dance training to hone your expressive skills. Then step into one of the many privately-owned coffee shops for an espresso and a pastry. Feel free to lounge and enjoy some discussion or deep thinking; the atmosphere in these places won't encourage you to rush out the door.
