What is your favorite restaurant or hang out in Logan Square?
I love Cellar Door Provisions! Everything on the menu is delicious and I love how it is always changing with the season and using ingredients and flavors in unique ways. Their pastries are heavenly and I think they are making the best food in Chicago.
What’s your favorite thing to do in the neighborhood?
I have a (nearly) two-year-old daughter so we spend a lot of time at the parks. Palmer Square is my favorite because of the large trees, fun play area and grassy picnic space. We also spend a lot of time biking the boulevards and the Bloomingdale Trail.

There are so many talented people on the team, and I love being inspired by their creativity in events and the great journalist and photographers on the team.
What have you learned from working with LSQ?
Working with LSQ has been a great way to connect with small businesses in Logan Square that I didn’t know about.
