In Memoriam: Flat Top Grill

February 23, 2023

Despite the variety of Asian culinary options in Evanston, Flat Top Grill was a standout. Upon returning to campus this Winter Quarter, I was heartbroken to learn Flat Top closed its doors just days before. The Asian fusion restaurant was a favorite of many students and my go-to when family or friends came to town due to the commendable ambiance and service. 

Flat Top catered to those with all types of allergies and had a wide variety of menu items. Some of its most popular dishes included ramen, fried rice, poke and create-your-own stir fry bowls, which was definitely a step up from the Plex East dining hall.

Though I’ll miss taking in the delicious smells of the restaurant and eating Flat Top fried rice on North Beach with my friends, fans of the restaurant will be happy to know Flat Top has a location in Chicago. Will I be making the trip? Definitely.
