Avli River North - Chicago
A third location for this Winnetka, Ill.-based eatery has opened, this time in River North. Avli is a modern Greek destination offering traditional Greek barbecue, small plates and larger dishes. This location only serves dinner.
One of Avli Taverna's signature offerings is the Greek Feast, which consists of barbecue lamb. It may be ordered for in-house service or takeout and serves larger groups. It's a hit with guests as well as the Berkshire pork and slow-roasted chicken, which may also be served gyro style.
The venue is situated on two levels, with the first level showcasing a bar for guests to hang out and watch sports action. For imbibing, there is an extensive Greek wine list, plus signature cocktails made with Greek spirits and Greek craft beers--likely one of the largest selections in the Midwest.
