The Hit ListChicago

The April Hit List: Taquizo, Andros Taverna, SoJu BBQ, House of Fire, and More


In a Hit List edition fitting for spring, several new restaurant openings lend some much-needed hope for brighter days ahead. From a retro joint in Stony Island with killer Southern food to vibrant, woodfired Greek in Logan Square, feel-good Afro-Caribbean in East Garfield Park, and the arrival of the ingenious “quesataco” in Wicker Park, newcomers are sprouting like budding trees.

You’ll find plenty of beloved standbys in this month’s Hit List, too — many with expanded options whether you’re staying home or ready to dine out. Spring is (finally) here; let’s eat.
