This place is great! Atmosphere is very welcoming and chill and cool and the staff is also really friendly. But what I loved the most- the food! It was so delicious and flavorful, and the portion sizes were generous. The presentation was exquisite as well. If you are looking to treat yourself to an amazing meal. Try with your friends and family. I would like to come back here again.

Awesome Georgian food. As a Turkish guy living in Chicago I really loved the dishes. Portions were big. Turkish coffee is a definitely a must in the end of the day. Service was fast, waitress worked tirelessly to feed our empty stomachs. Will come back!

Having no prior experience with Georgian food beyond the baked goods, I cannot comment on the authenticity here. It seems like there is a mixed set of emotions on this subject, via other reviewers. In reading online, however, I've realized that Georgia has an incredibly diverse culinary tradition for a country its size, so perhaps this has something to do with the mixed reactions? What I can say is that this food was unlike anything else I've had. Similar in many ways, and often with familiar ingredients, but much more unique than I was expecting. The flavors were very bold, almost exhaustingly so, and the flavor combinations did not remind me of either Turkish or Russian cuisines, which I was expecting as major influences.

Chicago Diplomat Cafe is the local ambassador for the food of the Caucasus!

Georgian cuisine refers to the cooking styles and dishes created by Georgian people. The Georgian cuisine is unique to the country, but also carries some influences from other European and nearby Middle Easternculinary traditions. Each historical province of Georgia has its own distinct culinary tradition, with variations such as Megrelian, Kakhetian, and Imeretian cuisines. Rich with meat dishes, the Georgian cuisine also offers a variety of vegetarian dishes.Georgian cuisine is the result of the broad interplay of culinary ideas carried along the trade routes by merchants and travelers alike.[1] The importance of both food and drink to Georgian culture is best observed during a feast called supra, when a huge assortment of dishes are prepared, always accompanied by large amounts of wine, and that can last for hours. In a Georgian feast, the role of the tamada (toastmaster) is an important and honored position.  

Oksana Douglas wants you to take your time at Chicago Diplomat Cafe, the city's—and perhaps the state's—only restaurant devoted to the feasting foods of the Republic of Georgia.
