Café at the Plaza

1007 N. Cass St.

New chef, new menu! The wonderful Art Deco diner, tucked inside the Plaza Hotel, serves breakfast all day along with soup, salads, burgers and sandwiches. The courtyard in back provides the ultimate in outdoor, urban dining during the summer. (J.B.) FF. SB. OD. 272-0515.

Miss Katie's Diner

1900 W. Clybourn Ave.

Miss Katie's is in the mold of a classic '50s diner. It opens for breakfast and makes a reliable omelet. Lunch and dinner offer more substantial fare. The blue plate specials include diner classics like meat loaf and roast turkey. Dinner gets a bit more fancy with BBQ ribs and Sicilian tenderloin. The thin-cut onion rings are always good. Save room for a milk shake or a malt. (J.B.) FF. SB. RS. Handicap access. 344-0044.


The new owners of the Shops of Grand Avenue have revealed a radical redesign for the mall, which will include a proposed grocery store, an urban marketplace and contemporary office spaces, as well as the potential for a new name. Will the new owners succeed where past owners have failed in turning Grand Avenue around?
