The Chicago Free Press, the weekly gay newspaper, still doesn't recognize that Uptown exists. In the January 9th issue, the area around Broadway and Lawrence was named the "Hottest Area" in their 2007 Golden Spoon Awards, the the word Uptown was nowhere to be found in the article.
"Hottest Area - Who would have thought that the corner of Broadway and Lawrence would be such a hotbed of culinary activity? The hookers and junkies have made way for a number of new cafes. Demera, Ethiopian, 4801 N. Broadway, (773) 334-8787, is still working out the kinks. Meanwhile, Fat Cat, 4840 N. Broadway, (773) 506-3100, and Marigold, 4836 N. Broadway, (773) 293-4653, add comfort food and upscale Indian dining to the mix, respectively. Crew, 4804 N. Broadway, (773) 784-2739, pulls in a good lunch crowd for its great pub fare while neighboring Fiesta Mexicana, 4806 N Broadway, (773) 769-4244, has a strong following for its no-frills south of the border menu."
