The American-based daily newspaper, The New York Times, sent their food reporters, editors, and critics to travel and eat from their favorite restaurants across the U.S. to build their annual list of the 50 Favorite Restaurants of 2022.
Among the 50 restaurants listed, The New York Times selected Evette’s in Chicago.
The restaurant is owned by the Lebanese-American Mitchell AbouJamra, and serves a fusion of Lebanese and Mexican cuisine in Lincoln Park and Time Out Market.
Evette’s menu is inspired by AbouJamra’s Teta (grandmother) who had passed down her delicious Lebanese recipes.
The restaurant is known for serving Lebanese-style food items, such as shawarma wraps, fries with garlic sauce, and garden salads made with sourced produce.
Evette’s also serves tortillas filled with tabbouleh, jalapeño, and halloumi along with their Middle Eastern-inspired enchiladas.
Back in March 2022, the Lebanese restaurant expanded its service in the trendy Time Out Market Chicago, at Fulton Market.
The eatery concept of the Time Out Market has been spreading around the world to bring together in one space the best cultural food and drinks each city has to offer.
Another Lebanese restaurant has also found its place in one of these trendy eatery markets, with the Beirut-based restaurant Mezzmiz kicking off back in February in the Time Out Market of Montreal, in the prestigious Eaton Center.
