Taxim, which is located in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood, features regionally-inspired Greek dishes paired with an all-Greek wine list. The stunning dining room is fitted with soaring 16-foot ceilings, travertine marble floors, dramatic Byzantine-style lamps and artwork, and the rooftop dining area lined with Greek flowering herbs.

The restaurant was chosen as one of of Chicago's Best New Restaurants in 2009/2010 by the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Magazine and the Chicago Reader. Additionally, Taxim's housemade yogurt with young favas and lamb confit was selected as one of the Best Bites of 2009 by the Chicago Reader, the house-cured sardines were mentioned in Time Out Chicago's 2009 '100 Best Things We Ate (and drank) This Year' feature, and the wood-grilled octopus was selected as 2010's 'Best New Dish' by Chicago magazine. Additionally, chef-owner David Schneider appeared on the Food Network's 'Iron Chef America' in April 2011 going head-to-head with Iron Chef Cat Cora.
