Mindy's Hot Chocolate
When it comes to this Bucktown restaurant's namesake drink, chef-owner Mindy Segal doesn't mess around. You'll find seven varieties of hot chocolate in all ($6 each), including chai and Mexican. But it's the Black & Tan that will call out to kids with an insatiable sweet tooth: This uber-rich concoction's made up of 2 parts hot chocolate to 1 part hot fudge. And if your kid shies away from warm drinks, no worries: each variety is also available over ice. 1747 N. Damen Ave., 773-489-1747, hotchocolatechicago.com.
