Schwa - Awarded 1 Star (Very Good Cuisine)

1466 N. Ashland Avenue Wicker Park

This is a hidden gem off the beaten path in Wicker Park. Even though it's on Ashland, you'd go right past it if you didn't know it was there. The food is innovative, creative and somewhat unexpected. The Chefs prepare the food in a tiny kitchen and bring it out themselves. The avant garde atmosphere is perfect for the adventurous. The music only adds to the unique ambiance.



Congratulations again to all of the restaurants on this special recognition. For a full list of Chicago Winners.
