Restaurant Details

A meal at Lincoln Park's White Oak Tavern & Inn (which actually is an inn, with two rooms for rent upstairs) consists of earthy, soulful dishes made with products sourced almost religiously from the midwest. Credit goes to owner John Manilow, who shuttered the Lincoln Park location of his family-friendly comfort-food joint John's Place (the Lakeview location is still running) to open this very different sort of restaurant. Fresh dairy balances and boosts dishes all over the menu; the cheeseburger with butterkase could have been among the best I've eaten in years. Anchoring the menu are large plates—roasted chicken, whole grilled fish, a luscious fatty pork collar steak. For dessert, there's a plate of chocolate chip cookies to remember: thick and almost muffinlike, they're served warm, punctuated with molten deposits of chocolate and slathered with thick, sweet caramelized-milk icing.
