    Girl & the Goat

    Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard's Girl & the Goat is one of the hardest restaurants to get a table for so make reservations in advance. Totally worth the wait though - the food is amazing! Shared small plates here so you'll want to order a few different things to try. I especially loved the crisp braised pork shank, sugo pappardelle ...

    Can't beat a Chicago hot dog. I somehow did not miss ketchup. The pickle and condiments are key to getting the crunch and freshness! The atmosphere is chaotic and fun; I felt like I was at a theme park:)

    Frontera Grill

    12 reviews

    More relaxed than Topolobampo but still exceptional. Not a fan of celeb chef spots but Rick Bayless consistently delivers.

    Alinea sits in a small two story building. Alinea does not advertise its presence openly. A valet and a small sandwich board stating Alinea are the only indications near a double door set back from the street. Upon opening the wide double doors, you enter a hallway that narrows to create a false sense of perspective. At the end of ...

    The Signature Room at the 95th

    36 reviews

    On the 95th floor above the city buildings and rooftops of downtown Chicago is an unforgettable experience. The Signature Room has great cocktails for under $20, and very pricey wines. If you are there for the view, you do need to be a paying customer, so take a seat and enjoy the view and some dinner or cocktails in the ...

    Joe's Seafood Steak & Stone Crab

    17 reviews

    Sister restaurant to the famous Joe's Stone Crab in Miami, this is an institution in Chicago. The decor is classic steakhouse with white linens, handsome dark wood and plush leather booths. There's a filet mignon and a stone crab lunch special that includes soup, potatoes, cole slaw and key lime pie. The meaty stone crab claws are served cold and ...

    Shaw's Crab House

    12 reviews

    This was our "splurge" dinner for our trip to Chicago. I was a little nervous, because I had my three kids with me, and there were very few other children in the restaurant. The waitperson couldn't be nicer, though, and she was very patient and friendly with my kids. The decor is very old school, which is exactly what I ...

    What can I say about Rick Bayless that hasn't been said? Just go, for crying out loud. Stand in the line and don't complain about it, because you're going to get amazing food at a reasonable price.

    Giordano's Pizzeria on Rush

    38 reviews

    If you are visiting Chicago you HAVE to have Giordano's. It's all about the flaky, buttery crust and size of the slices at this place! You are not going regret the authentic Chicago deep dish with any toppings from here.

    Avec Restaurant & Wine Bar

    12 reviews

    The food at Avec is, truly, the best I've ever tasted. My sister and I sat at the bar, and the bartender was friendly and attentive, helpful with the menu. He chose a bottle of wine for us that turned out to be perfect with the pork shoulder we shared as an entree. The dessert, shortbread cookies with sherbet, was ...

    Intelligentsia Coffee

    8 reviews

    The seating could be much more comfortable but probably the best coffee shop in Chicago. Roasted and brewed with a passion. Plenty of seating, including a few spots outside.

    Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

    Delicious, unique and flavorful flavors - compared to bi rite in sf. I tired a Thai flavored one and it tasted like a savory spicy pad Thai noodle - so incredible. I enjoyed the black coffee ice cream as it had a kick to it as well!

    Bavette's Bar & Boeuf

    6 reviews

    Went here for an anniversary dinner, this place lived up the the #2 Chicago 2012 New Restaurant billing. The jazz and speakasy atmosphere are perfect. A place where you can enjoy some light music and have a conversation, which isn't always the case at a new, hip Chicago restaurant. The cocktails are fantastic. For our entrees we had bone in ...

    Mindy’s Hot Chocolate

    4 reviews

    My boyfriend and I just moved down the street from this place (dangerous, I know) and we're already obsessed. Any place that has to ask if you're here for desserts, drinks, or dinner is good by me! Their hot chocolate is (obviously) amazing, but be prepared, it's rich! I will be sure to split an order next time... but wow. ...
