Make It Better reviews Karma and Guanajuato
Make It Better magazine restaurant reviewer Julie Chernoff had the opportunity to visit North Shore restaurants, Karma and Guanajuato.

Chernoff found nirvana at Karma (510 E. Route 83, Mundelein; 847-970-6900). “The Tempura Green Beans ($5) were light and crispy and served with a chili-garlic dipping sauce. They quickly disappeared. We also vacuumed down an order of Black Salt & Szechwan Pepper Calamari with Sweet Garlic Lime Aioli ($8).”

Chernoff raves about Karma’s staff: “Service was attentive throughout, and the coffee was delicious, so we left refreshed and ready to face the world. We had found our inner zen.”

Chernoff also reviews contemporary Mexican restaurant, Guanajuato (73 Green Bay Rd., Glencoe; 847-242-0909). “We delved into the ‘Aperitivos’ with gusto, starting with creamy, fresh guacamole ($6.50, $8.50 with crudités). Coctel de Camarones ($10.95), a Mexican-style shrimp cocktail with lots of chopped shrimp tossed with avocado, onion, cilantro and jalapeño in a tangy tomato sauce, hit the spot.”
