    Intelligentsia Coffee

    7 reviews

    I visit Intelligentsia on Randolph about 3 days per week. My favorite coffee in the city. You can purchase whole bean coffee by the pound to take with you, they have quite a large selection. Very hip inside. The staff is very knowledgable about the coffee.

    Girl & the Goat

    Pretty awesome, I have to say. I went with a friend of mine and her parents and it was great. We had the BEST bottle of red wine, and I wish I could remember the name! The dishes we got were completely random (we all selected different ones to share) and they were pretty great, some better than others. I ...

    Frontera Grill

    11 reviews

    Getting in required a wait in line but it was oh so worth it. The menu is alway changing, but try something with mole, a savory chocolate sauce. You can start of lunch with mango guacamole and a winter green salad. Oh. I want to be there now!

    Garrett Popcorn

    40 reviews

    There's not a better snack stop to break up a long day of Chicago shopping. Every flavor of popcorn I've tried has been excellent. First time? Try the Chicago mix.

    Piece Pizzeria and Brewery

    Really great place. The pizza options are great and I've seriously never had one there that I didn't enjoy. The goat cheese appetizer and salads are also really good. I live right by this place now so ordering it to-go is a no-brainer. I will say though that I just went on a Saturday for the first time and was ...

    Awesome Chicago dawgs! No ketchup allowed. They have car-hops like the old days.

    What a wonderful little coffee shop. Their unique roasts are full-flavored and absolutely delicious. The cold-brewed (in other words, correctly brewed) coffee was top notch. It had such a great flavor and really hit the spot on a hot summer day. I'll be heading back next time I'm in town.

    Ann Sather's Restaurant

    13 reviews

    Go for the cinnamon buns. Holy crap. The most amazing buns ever. All good is pretty good. Portions are huge though, so after starting with cinnamon buns sharing is a good idea.

    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 ...

    Moto Restaurant

    4 reviews

    The grand daddy of molecular cooking technique. I think Moto was first to popularize the cooking techniques that include edible soy ink, blow torch and laser. What an experience dining here. There are 2 options for the set menu and of course the one that includes a tour to the scientific lab that is their kitchen has to be chosen!

    Revolution Brewing

    7 reviews

    Holy cow. I was just here for dinner yesterday and it was amazing. I will say, I started off with a bummer beer that was brewed in house. I forget what it's called but it was not a favorite. Aside from that though, the menu was STELLAR. Everything on it looked interesting and unique and even the staple standard bar ...

    Keefer's Restaurant

    2 reviews

    Visited this place while on a conference in Chicago. The Kansas Strip there was the best I have ever eaten anywhere - so tender and done just right. 500+ grams is a lot though.

    Billy Goat Tavern & Grill

    great for history, right downtown, a good fast cheap lunch option that isn't a chain. But they only have hamburgers, which is of course why they're famous.

    Gino's East of Chicago

    25 reviews

    If I could I would give Gino's a 3.5. I love Gino's pizza especially the layer of sausage. How could go wrong with the state flower of Illinois layer all over your pizza pie? :)

    The Purple Pig

    21 reviews

    Places that don't take reservations inherently annoy me, but their charcuterie was in a league of it's own. Perfect for an after-theater matinee, these small places are great to share.
