We chose to dine here because it was close to the Civic Opera (we had tickets for “Aida*). For whatever reason I imagined the South Branch was going to be a pub with bar food but was surprised at how modern and tasteful the interior was. Our table was next to a window overlooking the “South Branch” of the Chicago River and it was fun seeing all the tour boats passing by. The food was very good. We had cheese curds for an appetizer. For the entree I had the steak wrap with garlic mashed potatoes, my wife had the macaroni and cheese, and my daughter had a cheeseburger with fries. The price was what you’d expect for a restaurant in the Loop but it wasn’t astronomical. I’d say it’s a great place to take someone from out of town after you had deep dish, Chicago-style hot dogs, and a cheeseborger at the Billy Goat Tavern.

A mix of modern and traditional Italian cuisine, our cozy ristorante has long been a local favorite. Sisters Anna and Maria, originally from the Basilicata region of southern Italy, first opened the doors of Anna Maria Pasteria in 1989.

Beginning at age seven, Anna fell in love with cooking, creating her first plate of Pasta e Fagioli, a simple peasant dish that is now an Italian specialty. Enamored with cuisine and hospitality, Maria followed the family tradition and put her heart into making the best and most heavenly Tiramisu.

After three decades, Anna and her team continue to dedicate themselves to the finest homemade Italian cuisine and service. Each entree is prepared to order with only the finest and freshest ingredients.

The food was excellent, I feel like they were understaffed for the amount of tables that they had, we ordered a bottle of wine, and the waiter only poured a tasting, and never came back to Poor the rest for the other people having wine. I know it’s difficult to get servers, but I hate to lower my standards when I’m having a nice meal I expect my servers to be trained. He also did not come back one time to ask how everything was. I would definitely recommend based on the food, I just think that they need to do better training for their staff. We had six people in our party, and they were gracious enough to tell us they added 20% gratuity, but for this amount of gratuity, I would’ve expected better service.

About the restaurant
Although it's most famous for its electrifying use of chilies and lip-tingling ChengDu peppercorns, the heart of the local cooking style lies in the artful mixing of flavors.

Chengdu cooks excel at combining hot, numbing, sweet, sour, savory, and nutty seasonings to create an astonishing variety of flavors.

Locals like to say, "each dish has its own style; a hundred dishes have a hundred different flavors."

“un-Americanized, small-place street food originated from Szechuan China, awarded as "best heritage restaurant" by Jean Bancheet”

Our Story Begins in Chengdu

"Nearly everything at Da Mao Jia is designed to set your tongue alight with chile heat. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise since the new Bridgeport restaurant specializes in street food from Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan province of China and home to one of the most ferociously spicy cuisines on the planet."

The menu and the waiter said the dish I wanted was VERY spicy. I decided to try it anyway - and it was the perfect amount of spice! Not your usual Chinese restaurant (no chop suey or lo mean) but it's fun to try new things. The tastes were excellent!

Overall, a great place to catch a quick brunch if you’re downtown and doing something at the convention center like we were. Park in the lower level of the hotel head up to the restaurant to eat. And then walk through the skyway to the event you’re attending. Had the breakfast buffet which was reasonably priced, the food quality was great. And the service was great.
