For over ten years, Northwestern students have enjoyed Evanston’s annual Big Bite Night, a partnership between ASG, Downtown Evanston, and Whole Foods during which students sample cuisine from over 30 restaurants for free. Participating restaurants hope to entice return visits by making a positive impact with their food, sometimes even offering coupons, magnets, and take-home menus. Here are some Northwestern students’ favorite locations.
Sophomore Joann Lee, Zoba Noodles: “The ramen was really nice and warm.”
Freshman Jackson Lehmar, Potbelly's: “The oatmeal chocolate chip cookie was by far the best thing.”
Sophomore Ryan Evenson, Edzo's: “I just had a shot of Nutella milkshake and it was orgasmic.”
Senior Grace Hamilton-Vargo, Lou Malnati’s: “They gave me a whole piece of pizza.”
Senior Ben Bloch, The Celtic Knot: “Their potato soup is warm, it’s tasty and it’s always there. I remember it from freshman year.”
Freshman Courtney Baldwin, Edzo's: “Definitely the place with the Nutella Milkshake.”
