Cosina Grill... Not Just Another Mexican Restaurant

By Jacqui Wedewer

Chicago has many excellent Mexican restaurants.  I have eaten at quite a few of them, including some excellent recommendations from Check, Please!  So, there has to be something special about Cosina Grill for me to bring it to your attention.  A small double storefront in the western edge of the Andersonville neighborhood, the walls display Mexican folklore, and wooden tables are in two pleasant rooms.  Say the secret word, and you get a free order of guacamole!  The "coupon" is on their website, and has not changed for a while so try "piggybank.&quot

La Casa De Isaac (CLOSED)

La Casa de Isaac brings you Mexican cuisine served in a kosher style. With this lesser-known style of Mexican cuisine you will encounter milder tastes, but the fresh ingredients are sure to satisfy. Here you'll find King David's quesadillas made with lox, cream cheese and onions! The service is delightful and the meal is very affordable. Stop in at the restaurant owner’s deli right around the corner.

Carlos' (closed)

Carlos' is a destination - a place diners go to enjoy an elegant French meal, prepared thoughtfully and served politely. Monday nights Carlos' offers a film viewing and discussion that is accompanied by a delicious meal.
