Today I have another Chicago spot for you: Nana!
I’ve been to this little place twice now, both times for breakfast. I like this spot because it’s a bit off the beaten path, located in Bridgeport. If you’re unfamiliar with Bridgeport, it’s on the city’s South side where the White Sox play. Don’t be fooled, I’m not actually super familiar with the neighborhoods of Chicago, just this one.
Nana is a family-owned restaurant that serves only organic, ethically-sourced food. All of their ingredients come from local farms and vendors, which is pretty awesome.
“The products we use are free of synthetic preservatives, growth hormones, genetically modified ingredients, antibiotics, artificial colors and flavors and other additives and chemicals, including pesticides. We support the ethical treatment of animals, promote sustainability and buy local whenever possible.”
The great thing about this place is that it’s a healthy place without being one of those healthy places. (If you know what I mean then you’re great.) I’m all for eating healthy food, but I’m also a relatively picky eater, so the trendy hot spot health places usually don’t appeal to me. This place has totally normal food- it’s just free of a bunch of junk that’s usually in it. I’ve eaten their pancakes and their standard American breakfast (like I said, picky eater) – both were great. You can check their menu here.
If you ever find yourself down in Bridgeport, go check it out and let me know what you think!
