Friendly breakfast-and-lunch spot featuring its namesake, plus bagels, sandwiches, and salads.

Our Review

Now that poutine is firmly established as a thing, the time has come to rediscover some other humble foodstuff that can be dressed up in myriad ways. Wicker Park's Hash intends to blaze a path with its namesake. What could be better than fried potatoes mixed with meat, vegetables, and cheese and topped with a fried egg or two? Hash regularly offers six or seven hashes to choose from, of various nationalities (Irish, English, Mexican, Ukrainian, French-Canadian, like a certain other potato preparation). And just as hash is an eminently likeable food, Hash the restaurant is an eminently likeable place. The staff is cheerful, the tables are clean, the coffee condiments bar is always stocked. More importantly, you can get a seat on a Sunday morning, and most important of all, it serves bagels from New York Bagel & Bialy. It's almost enough to make one forgive the hash itself for being a little less crisp and flavorful than the ideal. But even my dining companion, who professes to dislike hash (the menu has burgers, sandwiches, and salads for philistines like him), dug into mine for "just a taste" and then, unthinkingly, went back for a second. He got a slap on the hand.
