Plant-based dining in CBUS just got a lot more high-end thanks to pop-up turned restaurant Comune. From roast acorn squash to kombucha and more, this South Side gem is serving up innovative, memorable meals you won’t find anywhere else in the city.
Comune likes to keep its extremely creative menu seasonal—think Brussels Sprout Melts and Lavender-Citrus Sorbet level creative—so there’s something new to try with every visit. And since their top-notch chefs are known for pushing boundaries and putting together some amazing flavor and texture combinations, the friendly staff will be there for you when it comes to deciding what to order from the menu. Hey, choosing between grilled trumpet mushroom and stir-fried spaghetti squash is harder than it seems. Add in a rotating selection of beer, rosé, and red wine, and chances are good that Comune is about to be your new go-to for lunch, dinner, and dessert.
Beautifully-crafted soups, salads, and spreads aren’t the only thing this elevated, health-conscious restaurant has going for it, though, — the atmosphere is also something to write home about. The look is super-trendy, modern, and natural, with sleek white tables and minimal decor filling an intimate space that seats just 65 people. Not to mention a brand new patio that will be perfect for enjoying your meal alfresco in the summer months.
Wondering where to find this upscale spot for vegetarian eats? Well, Comune has finally opened its doors and joined the feel-good party in East Public, also home to Thank Yoga, Jimmyluka’s Bar & Deli, Parsons North Brewing, and some pretty cool co-working spaces.
Now that the secret’s out, secure a reservation, bring your appetite, and get ready for some downright delicious dishes at Comune.
