Re: “P.F. Chang's China Bistro

The food was too salty and greasy.

Ole Ole has nice tapas and good sangria at a pretty reasonable price. Go for the grilled squid or octopus at $8. The fresh oysters with a Latino-inspired mignonette are delicious. The empanadas are tasty--the beef and spinach are the best ones. The clams are also good, but a tad salty. For drinks, order the sangria--it is very good and very reasonable.

Re: “Psistaria

Psistaria has good, inexpensive Greek food in an unpretentious atmosphere. It is not the best Greek food, but the offerings are very solid. The service is great with a very friendly staff. I would highly recommend the appetizers and the BBQ Lamb (a selection of roasted lamb). If you are up in the Lincolnwood way, this is one of the best restaurants in the area.

Re: “Spacca Napoli

The pizza here is outstanding! The only place better is Il Forno Campo de Fiori in Rome!

The white pizza with arugula is my fave. The salads are awesome and huge, and the grilled veggies make a lovely starter, and might I recommend a bottle of the Sicilian rose.

The Grind is one amongst several Lincon Square cafes and coffee houses (there are now 4 in a two block stretch). On the plus side, The Grind makes really good coffee, soup and sandwiches, and it is the kind of place where one can sit and linger for a wilde without getting a dirty look.. The minuses are lackadaisical and sloppy service and kinda high prices.

Re: “Tokyo Marina

Tokyo Marina is NOT one of those glitzy sushi bars where the decor is part of the experience. It is a homely little place that is more like the sushi bars of my youth (when eating sushi was definitely esoteric and adventerous) and that is just fine.

The food, especially the fish, is beautifully fresh. The menu sports typical Japanese dishes, but the quality of ingredients, preparation and presentation may surprise one considering the surroundings, and considering the quality of the food, the bill will surprise you too. Tokyo Marina is very reasonable. It is best to sit at the bar and ask Ruben to make special rolls like a green dragon or his special tuna roll--none of them are on the menu.

Re: “Furama

I have been to dim sum at Furama a lot, but we tried some new things this time. We has duck egg rolls--very good! And a plate of steamed jelly fish--refreshing and crunchy!
