There’s nothing better than warm soup or chili on a cold January, so it’s a perfect time to Follow Me on Friday to Capt’n Nemo’s, 7367 N. Clark (at Jarvis). Join me this Friday, January 22nd, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., as I beat back the winter chill at this Rogers Park landmark.
Owner Steve Ragusi will be in the restaurant’s “Jules Verne Room” (see photo below) serving up free of charge Capt’n Nemo’s award-winning split pea soup and turkey chili. And I’ll be providing some liquid refreshments to wash it all down, including complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks.
Though Capt’n Nemo’s is now found at several locations throughout Chicago, the Rogers Park store is the original, opened by Steve’s parents back in 1971. Capt’n Nemo’s longstanding survival in Chicago’s competitive restaurant environment is testament to its enduring food quality and unwavering commitment to customer service. Avoiding trendy and passing fads, Steve makes sure Capt’n Nemo’s remains true to the Ragusi family’s roots.
His soups are of such high quality that Steve was labeled the “Soup-Nice-Guy” by Fox-TV. Time Out Chicago rated Capt’n Nemo’s split pea soup number one soup in Chicago and Steve’s turkey chili was featured just last November on WGN-TV’s Chicago’s Best.
While visiting Capt’n Nemo’s, you might want to give one of their sandwiches a try. The Captain’s Secret Sauce, a staple since the restaurant first opened, gives the sandwiches their unique flavor that has become synonymous with the term “Chicago Sub Sandwich.” Simply stated, Capt’n Nemo’s provides the best value around.
Stop by Friday and check it out!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
