About Mango Pickle
Mango Pickle, located at 5842 N. Broadway St., Chicago, IL 60660, is a modern Indian restaurant inspired by the diversity and dynamism of India’s rich culinary landscape, which goes far beyond the popular tandoori oven preparations of its northern frontiers to the distinctly exciting fare of its coasts and avant-garde urban homes, streets and eateries. The restaurant’s approach is influenced by our location in the Midwest, with attention to season, sustainability, and quality of the ingredients they use and their preparation.
Heading the kitchen is chef/owner Marisa Paolillo and partnering on the creative direction is Gregory Bazire. Paolillo is a Chicago native whose journey as a chef began in Bombay (Mumbai), India, a melting pot of locals, expats, cultures and cuisines from every part of India. Bazire, a French native, is a chef and restaurateur who has been residing and working in India since 2005. Their collaboration was first sparked by a month-long catering project in 2012 for a yoga retreat in Goa, India.
Launched in December 2016, Mango Pickle was awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand designation in 2018 and 2019. Dinner is served from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 3 to 9 p.m. Sunday. The restaurant is closed Monday and Tuesday.
