Giant - Chicago
Giant is exactly the sort of restaurant you'd expect to find in Logan Square. Its interior makes as much of a statement as the food, featuring lots of rustic, reclaimed furnishings that are purposefully mismatched.
Chefs Jason Vincent and Ben Lustbader's food is also strategically mismatched, merging global flavors and cuisines in a manner diners should appreciate. Of course, the menus are seasonal, so nothing ever stays the same, but there's always something for the hardcore carnivore and the vegetarian. All breads and pastas are housemade.
Behind the bar ranges from a tight global wine list to updated classics of the Negroni and Cosmopolitan.
