Where to Find Cold-Weather Comfort Food Near 1500 Locust

Old Man Winter has finally arrived at your 1500 Locust apartment! Now that the holiday fun has died down and the new year is underway, the cold weather may have you feeling less than cheerful. One of the best antidotes to that winter gloom is a tasty treat; just like your mom’s chicken noodle soup or your favorite chili recipe have always been your go-to on chilly, snowy days, classic comfort foods especially hit the spot when the weather turns cold!


Lucky for you, there are a number of restaurants near your 1500 Locust apartment specializing in comfort food—so you can get the warm and cozy feeling of a homecooked meal without having to ever turn on the stove! One of the local standouts is Bud & Marilyn’s. Located two blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment, the Midtown Village hot spot has homecooking down pat—after all, chef and owner Marcie Blaine Turney named it after her grandparents, who ran an eatery in her Wisconsin hometown for decades.


The menu follows through on that feel, with selections like fried chicken, sweet corn, short rib stroganoff and, of course, meatloaf! Bud & Marilyn’s is known for its menu of “hot buttered buns”—which come in varieties including tofu, spicy and bratwurst. Top off a meal with homemade mashed potatoes, cheddar pierogies or buttermilk pretzel rolls, and you’re set. Apart from the extensive beer and wine selections, Bud & Marilyn’s cocktails will also have you feeling nice and toasty, with nearly a dozen creative concoctions.


The restaurant is popular with happy hour partiers, who enjoy drinks, hot buns, pretzels and cheese curds made with Wisconsin cheese, all priced between $4 and $6. It is also open for weekday lunch and weekend brunch, so no matter when the comfort-food craving strikes you, Bud & Marilyn’s will deliver!
