Fodor's Review

Chicagoans flock here to satisfy cravings for Indian, Middle Eastern, and Asian fare, or, as the avenue moves west, a good Jewish challah. Indian restaurants and sari shops start popping up just west of Western Avenue. Though west of Talman Avenue was once an enclave for orthodox Jews and Russian immigrants, many of the people, along with the shops, have migrated to the northern suburbs.

Devon Avenue Review

Now we live elsewhere, but when we lived in Chicago, we visited Devon St. about once a month to have lunch at an Indian restaurant (my husband is Indian, I'm not). It's a great way to get a feel for a different culture. Be adventurous - go into the stores and shops, buy some Indian pastries that you don't know the name of, and enjoy a great Indian meal at any one of dozens of restaurants. If you're staying downtown, and don't have a rental car

(which you shouldn't, because you don't need a car when visiting Chicago), it's a bit difficult to get to Devon St., but it's do-able. You can take a cab, or take the red line El up to Loyola, then take the 155 Devon bus west to the area with the Indian stores and restaurants.
