When we’re talking to people on our text-based recommendation platform, Text Rex, we hear this line a lot: ‘I’m looking for a place like [restaurant name] but not [restaurant name]. There are also typically some other qualifiers thrown into the mix. For example, it might go something like: ‘Hey, what’s a restaurant that’s exactly like Carbone, except not as expensive as Carbone, but still exactly as good as Carbone, that can seat ten of us at 8pm tonight.’ Sounds fun, right? It actually is. We’re always up for a good challenge. But sometimes there just isn’t a good answer.
Then again, sometimes there is. And Faun is a perfect example.
Faun is a Prospect Heights restaurant brought to you by a former Vinegar Hill House chef, and it’s exactly the restaurant you’d be looking for if you wanted somewhere that’s ‘like Vinegar Hill House, but not Vinegar Hill House.’ The menu is similar, the casual-but-cute atmosphere is familiar, and they even have a pleasant back garden from which to enjoy your Vinegar Hill House-esque food from.
