Mediterranean | Gold Coast / Streeterville, Chicago

Food was delicious...the burratta salad and bruleed cheesecake dessert especially. The restaurant itself is quite elegant, yet has a contemporary and relaxed vibe. The best part of the visit was the service. Our waiter from Belluno was charming, gave us our space, yet we became friends before the night was over. Hope to return on my next trip to Chicago! More

French | Gold Coast / Streeterville, Chicago

With the loss of Bistro Zinc in the neighborhood, this is an ideal replacement. An elegant dining room, attentive staff and a delicious meal makes this a restaurant I will definitely return to. The lunch special is an incredible value, French Onion soup, salad, Beef Wellington, and macaroons for $24.00. The bar seems well appointed and a great place to drop in and dine alone. More

French | Winnetka, North Suburbs

Quite frankly, this was the best tasting menu food wise I've ever had. And in the last year and a half I've experienced 10 Michelin stars plus worth of tasting menus. The food was simply exquisite from darn near start to finish. The stumbles were courses that were just great. More

Bandit
Bandit
American | West Loop, Chicago

A polished-casual restaurant & bar that combines the charm and character of a local neighborhood bar with the sophistication and quality of an upscale, chef-driven restaurant. The design of Bandit is a juxtaposition of rustic materials, vintage paraphernalia, and polished décor. It is lowbrow meets high style; glamour meets grit with warm ambient twinkle lights, combined with edgy neon bar signs creating an inviting feel to the restaurant. Nostalgic, “divey” elements are harmoniously married to elevated attributes throughout the concept in both look and feel, as well as the food and drink presentation. The menu is comprised of eclectic American comfort food with Executive Chef Shane Graybeal behind the creation of the dishes. Chef Graybeal brings his rustic American style of cooking to Bandit with an emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients. More

Catrinas Mex LLC
Catrinas Mex LLC
Mexican | Joliet, Southwest Suburbs

You might know chips and salsa as a snack you enjoy while watching football with friends. Salsa, meaning “sauce” in Spanish, plays a bigger part in Mexican cuisine than just a dip. Not every salsa is spicy. They help enhance the flavors of the meat in tacos. That’s why no taco is complete without a little salsa on top. Stop in and try our authentic homemade salsas.More

Discover Chicago

Winds whipping off Lake Michigan are no match for hungry Chicagoans in pursuit of the ultimate burger and a respite from brutal winters. Historically at the heart of the meat industry, the city’s slaughterhouses now house tony Michelin-starred restaurants, and deep-dish is just one of countless takes on Italian American staples in town. Arguably the American capital of molecular gastronomy, Chicago is at once a trendsetter and the capital of casual. Calling all carnivores.
