Here Are All the Restaurants Featured in Season Two of 'The Bear'

If you watch the show 'The Bear' on Hulu, you may have recognized lots of Chicago restaurants featured in Season 2. Here are just a few:


Recently awarded a James Beard Award for the Best Chef- Great Lakes, Kasama, the product of a husband and wife duo, is a Filipino restaurant in the city's Ukrainian Village neighborhood.

It was the first stop on Chef Sydney's list.

Avec and Publican Quality Meats

A West Loop staple and consistently ranked among the city's best, Mediterranean spot Avec gets one of the bigger features in Syd's Chicago food marathon.

She even speaks to owner Donnie Madia in the show, who is also an actual restaurateur with One Off Hospitality, which is behind both Avec and another featured spot in the episode, Publican Quality Meats.

Madia praised the show on Instagram following its release.

"@avecchicago and @publicanquality are incredibly grateful to be part of season two of @thebearfx.

This show is a beautiful homage to all the great restaurants and this great city of Chicago," he wrote.


Contrary to its name, the small Logan Square restaurant named Giant has an equally small but still recognizable cameo in the show, as first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times.

Pizza Lobo

Logan Square's Pizza Lobo makes a cameo in the episode as Sydney grabs a slice of thin crust pizza to-go.

Margie's Candies

For an episode titled, Sundae, it is only fitting that Syd's tour includes a stop at the beloved Margie's Candies.

The show features the eatery's Bucktown location. Margie's has been dishing out ice cream, milk shakes, candies and more for more than 100 years in the city.

It's such a great show! Check it out if you haven't yet!
