It's Northwestern University's Family Weekend, and you know what that means: Your family will be treating your broke college self to all the fine dining that Evanston has to offer. Maybe you've been dying to get your brunch on, but don't want to risk spending the last $15 in your bank account. Or, maybe you've been craving the comforting taste of perfectly-mashed potatoes. Or, maybe you're just overwhelmed with the many options surrounding campus. Thankfully, I'm here to help. Here are 6 Evanston restaurant options for any mood this family weekend.

If You're Feeling Fancy: Found Kitchen and Social House

Found is an Evanston gem. Marketed as a social house, the restaurant is known for its untraditional items. Menu highlights include Harissa root vegetables, roasted tomato flat bread, roasted pork chops, and chamomile ice cream sundae. It's perfect for a fancy dinner with family, and you'll even forget that you've been living off ramen for the past three months.

If You're Feeling Cheap: Edzo's Burger Shop

Nothing beats a bomb burger, especially one at a cheap price. Edzo's menu offers three different burger patties, two vegetarian burger options, sandwiches, a wide variety of hot dogs, and nine (yes, nine) speciality fries options. And to curve your sweet tooth, end your meal with a $5 Nutella milkshake.

If You're Feeling Comfort Food: Whiskey Thief Tavern

Nothing says comfort food better than a hearty serving of mashed potatoes. Whiskey Thief does not disappoint with their rosemary smashed potatoes with chicken jus, plus the restaurant's Brussels sprouts are legendary. Northwestern Family Weekend just wouldn't be the same without these Brussels Sprouts, trust me.

Northwestern Family Weekend wouldn't be complete without some freshly-made sushi. This is where Kansaku Sushi comes in. Its modern atmosphere reflects directly onto its menu, which includes both sushi and cooked entrées (in case someone in your family isn't a huge sushi fan). Get the Carnival Maki, you won't be sorry.
