BYOB Small Seat Southern River North

Leghorn Cafe, hatched from the offshoot of the Ukrainian Village original, is serving up southern fried goodness in River North. The small space fronts LaSalle in the quaint Ohio House Motel, which adds some serious charm to the urban diner vibe.

Leghorns are a heritage breed of chicken that first came to the United States in the mid 19th century and are named after the Italian town of Livorno in Tuscany.

There's really nothing like a sandwich made with biscuits. Leghorn's standard offering includes pickle brined friend chicken with a selection of sauces and toppings.

Feeling spicy? The Nashville Hot version brings the heat. The restaurant has started to offer delivery as well, which means you can get chicken and biscuits without braving the elements.

Leghorn Cafe serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, but offers limited seating. Grab a wingman, bring the booze and snag a booth. Not imbibing? They've got fresh juice and Stumptown coffee ready to go.
