Dining is no different with a range that includes Indian cuisine on Devon Avenue and Southeast Asian fare on Argyle Street, plus Ethiopian, Mexican, Middle Eastern and more.

West

Between the Puerto Rican community of Humboldt Park, the Hellenic traditions in Greektown and the Mexican flavors of Little Village and Pilsen, it’s a melting pot that delivers authentic experiences through its ethnic restaurants and grocers, murals and monuments, churches and specialty shops.

South

Monuments and public art in Bronzeville are tributes to The Great Migration and African American heritage runs deep in Pullman, while the diversity of Bridgeport and Hyde Park can be seen in the rich cultural landscape of art centers, galleries, museums and performance venues.
