MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Straddling a bustling corner, this handsome New Orleans-style tavern feels right at home in vibrant Wicker Park. The interior is stylish and vast, with a humming bar up front where patrons line up three-deep behind stools. Beyond that, find a casual dining space buzzing with an amiable, but professional staff. Named for Executive Chef Brian Jupiter’s great-grandmother, Ina Mae, the menu ticks off many NOLA classics. Think packed seafood po’ boys and steaming gumbos, like the utterly delicious Ya-Ya, bobbing with shrimp, crawfish, chicken, and okra; or the pitch-perfect buttermilk-brined fried chicken, paired with pancakes, apple butter, and a side boat of gravy. The pineapple and coconut bread pudding soaked in rum will have sweet fans back in no time.
