Our Review

Chef-owner Clarence Robinson, a graduate of Washburne Culinary Institute, was recently featured in a New York Times story about how, despite the success of the City Colleges cooking school, Englewood, where it's located, still can't support restaurants other than fast-food joints. I hope Rogers Park can--Reecee's is the third place to open in this modest storefront in a couple years, and like its predecessors is distressingly free of customers most of the time. It shouldn't be, not with chef's specials like mushroom chowder and a cheese steak sandwich with Mornay sauce; there's also all-day breakfast and $5 "snack packs" with fries. The gumbo is dense with file powder and loaded with chicken and andouille; the filling po'boys come with a spicy house-made roasted pepper aioli. Service couldn’t be friendlier—here’s hoping the neighborhood comes around. Cash only for now.
