I'll be moving to the Chicago area in June to go back to grad school (NWU). I've never been to Chicago or Evanston, but have been told there are many great places to eat in Evanston. Where I choose to live will be as much a function of the number of quality restaurants (favorite activity) versus proximity to the campus. I enjoy food from the top of the scale right down to the local take-out place. It just needs to be good. Can I trust my friend who says there are many great eateries in Evanston? Or should I consider another part of town with a reasonable commute to the campus?
