Sola Restaurant Review

: This is an especially good place to go when the Chicago weather has you down, as chef Carol Wallack’s North Center pad is a bit beach-reminiscent. In kind, the menu --- a seasonal mélange of Californian-, Asian- and Hawaiian-inspired fare --- will transport you someplace balmy. Settle in, while the presiding, self-professed surfer serves artichoke fritters with zippy soy-lime and truffle aïoli; roasted beet and pineapple salad with yuzu vinaigrette; and hoisin-mustard-panko crusted tuna. Don’t miss the truffle-Parmesan fries either --- or the assortment of house cookies. The wine list is extensive and largely affordable. Curbside carryout makes eating on the fly a cinch.
