Located in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood, Pearl's Southern Comfort brings bayou flavors to you.
For owner Danny Beck, southern fare isn’t exclusively marked by bold bayou, creole, or slow-smoked barbecue flavors. It’s peppered with family, friends, a sense of belonging, and nostalgia. Sinking his teeth into a perfectly fried piece of okra transports Beck back to his southeastern Kansas roots beside his great grandmother, Pearl—the namesake of his welcoming bar and eatery, Pearl’s Southern Comfort.
“We loved this area and wanted to create a really nice neighborhood joint,” Beck says of he and co-owner Rich Hagerty’s decision to open Pearl’s in April 2015. “We want it to be fun, not stuffy, very approachable, a true hangout for the neighbors.”
