The Gundis Kurdish Kitchen

Chicago has Turkish restaurants but this is its first Kurdish one. What’s the difference? Skip the fairly rote lunch menu of shawarma wraps and hit this chic-looking spot for dinner, where you’ll find specialties like Mardin, an epic assemblage of lamb, eggplant, tomato, cheese and more. Or go for a Kurdish-style brunch, which piles the table with bread, eggs, goat cheese-stuffed crepes, fresh yogurt, dried fruit and more.

The Gundis Kurdish Kitchen is located at 2909 N. Clark.
