Alyssa ReyesChicago Writer
Alyssa grew up in Chicago and always has a pulse on the newest restaurants in the city. You'll often see her reaching for her phone to quickly snag an open reservation to one of them, sometimes with little success. She's a writer, traveler, and wannabe polyglot. Other interests include film directors, pilates, and planning itineraries for her dream vacations months in advance.
Our favorite places for a meal in the neighborhood.
La Esperanza is a Mexican spot in Pilsen with some of the best mole we’ve ever had.
Pilsen Yards is a great Pilsen spot to grab cocktails and tacos along with some live music.
