Useful information


Luella’s is named for Chef Darnell Reed’s Southern-born great-grandmother, and for good reason: one bite of this soul-infused fare will transport you to her hometown of Morgan City, Mississippi, a place she left behind for Chicago many years ago—and one that lives on in her grandson’s cooking. The no-frills, order-at-the-counter spot is simply adorned with genuinely welcoming service that only adds to the charm. Every spoonful of Luella's andouille and chicken gumbo is one to remember, thanks to a roux that's been cooked for five (count 'em) hours. The hot, sugary beignets are a pastry wonder, and chicken and waffles drizzled with Bourbon syrup are Southern by way of Brussels, featuring thick, eggy Liège waffles standing in for the usual rounds. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
