Daisy’s Po-Boy and Tavern is an Up-South po’ boy shop that evokes the vibrancy of New Orleans through its most celebrated and classic sandwich, fun colors, and music. During the weekdays and some nights, Daisy’s will host an array of Chicago’s die-hard sports fans featuring sports on nine television screens. During off-season evenings, you may find people enjoying the menu to the tunes of a local brass band or the sounds of Louisiana being piped in (pun intended).
Daisy’s is affectionately named after Chef Erick Williams’ late Aunt Daisy who married his Uncle Stew, a man with Louisiana roots and a passion for good food. Daisy and Stew shared 49 years of marital bliss and forever changed the way that Williams would see Cajun and Creole meals. Though the Great Migration has changed the way some of these meals are produced in the North, the love with which our po’boys are prepared is consistent with the love in the place of their origin. Erick’s late aunt Daisy is remembered as kind, no-nonsense, and always prepared to have a great time. We hope that as we pay tribute to a life well lived that you take part in our casual approach to fun, food, and laughter.
