Moving to Chicago from NYC. Need tips.

I've heard good things from friends about Bar Deville.

Also, technically, what is the name for the neighborhood i'm living in? We are just south of Chicago Ave. Is it still Ukrainian Village?

Moving to Chicago from NYC. Need tips.

My wife and I are relocating to Chicago in a week. We are both 27. Going from Gramercy Park in Manhattan to right around Wood and Chicago Ave. Walking around the neighborhood, it seemed like lots of Mexican places, so that's exciting, we both like Mexican.

Any other pro tips for the area? Neighborhood hotspots? Great bars or brunch spots? Favorites for takeout?

Thanks new neighbors!

La Saltena empanada discs

Is there anywhere I can get them in Manhattan? The Goya brand is terrible, and I don't want to have to schlep out Corona or Jackson Heights in Queens.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
