Best BYOB: Cozy Noodles and Rice

Paige Leskin, Reporter

Sub-zero temperatures and wind chill are worth trekking through to make it to this Davis Street establishment. Cozy Noodles and Rice, 1016 Davis St., new to the Best of Evanston winner’s circuit, boasts staff eager to provide glasses and a bottle opener for whatever your group brings to the table.

Cozy’s name is reflected in its atmosphere, complete with tables packed together in the small restaurant, as well as walls lined with license plates, Pez dispensers and an amalgam of tsotchkes. Despite that its chairs are constantly filled, the restaurant is able to still quickly serve its hungry guests their dishes of pad thai and pad see ewe. Olive Mountain and Zoba are great places to get a bite to eat, but Cozy, located at 1018 Davis St., has them both beat in atmosphere.

Its homey and informal feel draws in college students looking to relax after two midterms, four extracurriculars and three hours of sleep, who want somewhere away from campus to kick back.
