Our Favorite Places
Lincoln Square was historically a German neighborhood in Chicago, and some of the infrastructure in the area has retained a nod to that cultural integrity. For example, enjoy a visit to a German brauhaus, or snack on a bratwurst and a beer in the beer garden located above Gene’s delicatessen specialty grocery store on Lincoln Avenue. In addition, Lincoln Square annually hosts Chicago’s German American Oktoberfest every September and a small German American Parade that runs through the stretch of North Lincoln Avenue between Lawrence and Irving Park.
Gather is a new American gourmet cuisine spot that is popular among sophisticated diners of all ages. Their menu boasts favorites like wagyu beef tartare, charcuterie boards, and rotating seasonal entrees that are locally sourced.

The after school and summer camp programs that they offer are immense and comprehensive and serve as amazing opportunities for families in the neighborhood to take advantage of.
