Coco Pazzo Cafe - Chicago
Sister restaurant to long-time favorite Coco Pazzo, the more casual Coco Pazzo Cafe is situated in the Streeterville neighborhood.
The Tuscany-inspired eatery is right off the Magnificent Mile, so it's an ideal respite after a long day of shopping in the popular upscale shopping district.
The menu showcases mostly from-scratch ingredients, including pastas, sauces and dough for pizza and breads. Signature dishes include Tuscan fries infused with onions and parmesan, a spicy Tuscan soup called caciucco and grilled bone-in New York strip.
There are a number of brushcetta choices as well: Diners may choose from tomato and basil, ricotta and honey, smoked salmon, shrimp and cauliflower pesto, and prosciutto.
