North side small place

I used to live in Chicago about 8 years ago and had a couple of great meals at a place in or near the "Bucktown" area. This was when that area was starting to gentrify. It was on Division St. near Phylliss, the music bar. The water was served out of those old dented colored metal retro glasses and I think the cook was this blonde woman that wore high top sneakers and there was a mini fridge that looked like it had lived through a couple dorm room lives. I remember pretty diverse ethnic food in such a small place. Is this around any more, is it still small and cool and good. Is there anything like this anymore or is everything got too much money invested in an interior designer and architectural cracker baskets? Do you know what I mean? I'll be in Chicago twice this month and want to find real places.
