The Lucky Platter

If there's one word that describes this popular Evanston restaurant, it would have to be "eclectic." Owners Eric Singer and Ken Pospiech have filled the restaurant with one of Chicago's largest assortment of paint-by-numbers artwork and other timeless gems--bottle-cap figures, a dripping oil lamp and cheesy 1970s posters. The menu's also unpredictable, with as many Jamaican, Thai and Indian dishes as American standards. Over the years, Lucky Platter has gained a solid following for its sweet potato fries, pumpkin soup and jerk chicken.
