Mana Food Bar serves up inspired vegetarian cuisine that has been wowing all of Chicagoland since it opened four-years ago. Tucked away in the trendy Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago, this tiny but impressive table service restaurant offers diners a delightful change of pace. Successful restaurateurs Susan Thompson and Jill Barron created a hip sustainable haven. The restful clean lines of the eco-friendly interior form the perfect backdrop for a creative menu that takes inspiration from global cuisines.
Asian fusion, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes are a sight to behold. Beautifully prepared small and large plates, such as brown rice and mushroom sliders, flaky Spanakopita and delicate GYOZA pan-seared dumplings lure diners to beat a path to Mana.
The enclosed heated patio offers prime people watching, while enjoying a signature Sake cocktail. Craft beers, wine, Sake, homemade smoothies, just squeezed fruit and veggie beverages are also available. The innovative menu offers an extensive selection of reasonably priced cold and hot dishes. The refreshing quinoa salad is tossed with almonds, currants, mint and tangerine. Caponata, a tangy spread made from eggplant, tomato and caper relish is served on toasted bread.
Baked goat cheese oozes with goodness. A creamy sauté of mushrooms is served over polenta. Sweet and white potato pancakes served with pear chutney are simply delectable.
