If you are driving into Chicago from the east, Nana is a great dining choice. The location of Nana is easy to drive to and is right before hitting Chicago downtown traffic jam. Although it is situated at the south side of Chicago, near the corner of 33rd street and Halsted street, the area feels very safe, and parking on streets is very easy. You can just take 35th street exit off highway I-90/94(Dan Ryan Expressway). It takes less than 10 minutes off the highway.
Nana serves local, sustainable and organic dishes in the American comfort food style. I love breakfast and Sunday evening fried chicken there. It is a great place to take a break before you head into downtown Chicago or before you leave Chicago.
