Editorial Review of Sweet Basil

One of the greater finds in Lincoln Park, Sweet Basil is a quiet, comfy place to gear up before a night on the town or unwind after a hard dayís work. Nestled near the bustling corner of Halsted and Lincoln steps away from Dillingerís last stand, this Thai oasis offers a warm, wood-paneled interior, accented by various portraits, intimate tables and Buddhist trinkets. The specialty of the house is duck, but the expansive menu is tailored to suit all appetites, especially that of vegetarians. Take the time to study the abundant selection of soups and entrees. Seasoned diners often order crab rangoon or chicken satay while deciding whether to settle on a traditional curry or the more adventurous spicy basil eggplant. Donít worry about your spiciness limit, as the conscientious waitstaff refills water glasses so frequently yours will overflow just as soon as youíve drained it.

Parking can be an issue at Sweet Basil, but the calm atmosphere, tantalizing dishes and reasonable prices make circling the block a time or two a worthwhile stress. For those too impatient to find a meter, Sweet Basil offers take-out.

Average cost: <$10
