It feels good to be noticed.
There was a time when Chicago had only a handful of vegan restaurants. When we re-opened Alice & Friends in early 2016, we were surprised to have both local visitors and those that would drive over an hour (sometimes across the state from Indiana or Wisconsin) to dine in.
Over the years, we got to know many of you well enough to remember your favorite menu items. We thought these experiences would change as vegan options expanded in Chicago.
Boy, were we wrong!
After 7 years, we still regularly serve visitors from anywhere in the city, suburbs, and out of state. We know this is not coincidence but rather the power of your many recommendations.
This “word of mouth” effect has reached writers from places farther than we could ever imagine.
Where Has Alice & Friends Been Featured?
Alice and Friends has been featured in websites like The Chicago Tribune, The Infatuation, Eater Chicago, Veggies Abroad, and American Eats.
Looking back, we have so many great memories that we can’t help but wonder how many of you, writers, we have met and served at the restaurant. And as a token of appreciation for including us in your articles, we want to put these out there once again in the universe.
Thank you for making us the “coolest kid” on the block!
