When the 521 opened nearly 3 years ago, it was our goal was to serve the best ingredients- local whenever possible, fresh whenever available, prepared in the best ways possible. We created a place where you can sample foods from different places all in one spot! We offer healthful, made-from-scratch food prepared in the most flavorful ways. Our flavor forward menu- which changes frequently, is a mixture of Chicago Style Italian and Comfort Food from the Heartland. Although we do a fantastic job with Chicago Style Thin Crust Pizza, homemade Italian Beef and Sausage sandwiches and a variety of Fresh Ground Burgers, we also veer off the typical path with our Hardwood Smoked BBQ Specials, such as Smoked Wings, Memphis Style Ribs, Texas Brisket and Prime Rib on the weekends. Prepared in our custom Hardwood Smoker. We celebrate the traditional Friday Fish Fry with Fresh Icelandic Cod, Scottish Salmon and other great- fresh- seafood! We believe that living well isn’t just about eating great food, but about sharing it with the right people. Come taste our passion.
Not everyone likes the same food and that would be really boring if we did. We created our menu with this in mind. Our goal was to have a well rounded menu with a little something for everyone. We know that you’ll love everything you try. But this is your restaurant too and if you have a suggestion, we want to hear it!
We strive to offer a clean and enjoyable atmosphere for your dining experience.
Always striving to create excellent flavor combinations for you.
We always look to provide the best food from the most organic suppliers possible.
