This charming neighborhood, embedded within the Ravenswood area, holds a rich culture overloaded with charm, amazing food and a continuing respect for the community's Old World heritage. Lincoln Square is one of those subsections of Chicago that has a distinctive feel all its own. Infused with a Bavarian allure, the neighborhood reveals specks of German culture in its annual festivals and the hearty foods of mother Deutschland (bratwurst and schnitzel). Encircling the neighborhood's main business and entertainment district, which is basically a single street lined with quaint storefront shops and restaurants, are rows of three- and four-flat buildings with a few single-family homes tucked in among the multi-unit brick and stone residences. A vintage movie theater and the city's oldest bowling lanes find their home in Lincoln Square, as does Oktoberfest, where Chicagoans come every year to celebrate their German roots and, of course, drink beer.
