Not Fancy French BYOB

geg5150 | Jun 22, 2008 07:59 AM

Finally...the movers are coming and I'll be on terra firma in Chicago on about July 1st. While waiting for the movers to deliver our goods, we'll be eating out.

We are transporting our wine in the car with us, so we have that going for us. I have a little list of BYOB places that we're going to explore, but I'm really looking for a neighborhoody French brassierie/bistro with tasty food that is BYOB (hopefully).

Something that's cozy with great food, a local fave, not too pricey...maybe 25ish a head. A place that you go when you just don't feel like cooking. You know the local place that you just love, not the fancy, get dressed up, special occassion kind of French.

Any ideas? I'll take BYOB and non-BYOB options, please. Bonus if they're open for lunch. I'll be living in Andersonville, but anywhere close-ish is great.

Thanks in advance!
