Taxim - Chicago
Hunting for the best and freshest ingredients or growing your vegetables yourself is instinctive for Greeks.
Gardens and your connection to the land is a part of your soul because the land is life. Even in the big, hot, dry city of Athens, streets are lined with 'Nerantzi' bitter orange and lime trees and you will see apartment buildings draped with hanging gardens from porches and verandas.
In Chicago, many Greek families will be able to tell you which grocer has the best ingredients. Also, it is not uncommon that families grow their own vegetables and practice 'seed saving' from year to year.
At Taxim Restaurant, we continue this inherent tradition by sourcing the best and freshest ingredients so you can enjoy the full potential of traditional and regional dishes.
