New Chicago Comfort Food

Chicagoans celebrate the grand opening of Karyn’s On Green, a vegan comfort-food restaurant.

In late January, vegan restaurateur Karyn Calabrese celebrated the grand opening of Karyn's On Green, Calabrese's third vegan eatery to serve the Chicago area. The new restaurant specializes in gourmet vegan comfort food, with a unique menu offering a range of items. Options include meat-free mains, such as Crab Cakes and Crispy Chicken Legs and dairy-free desserts, including Chocolate Terrine and Bananas Foster. Personal touches, like its original drinks The Chicago Cocktail and The Windy Cha Cha Cha, give a nod to the restaurant's hometown. Calabrese also owns two other Chicago-based vegan restaurants, Karyn's Raw Café and Karyn's Cooked.
