The Food at South Side Social
A Unique Twist on Midwest Favorites
Headed by our resident culinary guru, Chef Jennifer ensures the menu at South Side Social Neighborhood Kitchen & Tap is like nothing you’ve had before. Each dish is a unique twist on hearty, homey traditional foods straight from America’s heartland plus irresistible southern comfort food offerings. Growing up next to the Stockyards, Chef Jennifer learned to appreciate the bounty only the Midwest provides. That’s why each meal features locally sourced ingredients, including fresh produce and locally raised and aged steaks and chops.
Even though we’re a new restaurant in Chicago’s South Side, we understand our roots here at South Side Social. We’re proud to pay homage to many of the South Side’s most famous contributions to the culinary world, such as our Signature Brownie. This dessert is an ode to its sweet beginnings at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893.
