    Avoid the overpriced stadium food and eat here before checking out the Sox.

    U.S. Cellular Field is known for having some of the best grub in the Major Leagues, but if you'd rather fill up on something else before heading to the game, a new Bridgeport eatery may be just the ticket.

    Nana (3267 S. Halsted St.), the area's first organic restaurant, debuts on Monday.

    The sit-down breakfast and lunch eatery offers an American menu peppered with Latin specialties.

    The owners, Omar and Christian Solis, not only grew up in the same building where Nana is located, they also know a little bit about the restaurant biz firsthand -- their father, Jose, has owned Tacos Erendira (3207 S. Halsted St.) for more than 40 years. Their mother, Maria Solis, was the longtime pastry chef at North Center’s Café 28, and many of her creations will make their way onto Nana's menu.

    Aside from typical fare like french toast and omelets, expect innovative items like banana-hemp pancakes with mulled hemp seeds and handmade ingredients like house-ground pork sausage and Greek-style yogurt.

    It's sounds like its more than enough to make your mama -- and your nana -- happy.
