map

Newly added!

A perfect pairing for its sibling restaurant, Wasabi Ramen, Nomonomo is a bustling Logan Square izakaya that has all the makings of a good time.

ERIS Brewery & Cider House Old Irving Park

map

Newly added!

It just feels right sipping housemade ciders and beer inside a converted Masonic temple, surrounded by soaring ceilings and exposed brick. Pub fare, such as maize-coated fried pickle chips, birria grilled cheese, and shrimp and grits, isn’t an afterthought here.

Broken Barrel Bar Lincoln Park

map

Newly added!

This is not your everyday sports bar: It’s a non-stop tailgate party with a fun-and-funky atmosphere, including an all-weather beer garden and plenty of large-screen TVs. On the food and beverage front, there’s an abundance of cocktails and brews, alongside a chef-created menu featuring house-smoked meats, variations on wings, and mac & cheese that’ll win the day.

Eleven City Diner South Loop

map

Because Eleven City Diner is like a throwback to simpler times, where the menu goes on for days and sandwiches are as tall as skyscrapers. Matzo ball soup tastes as good as bubbe’s, the meats are thin, the shakes, thick (and boozy, if you like). Floats with housemade, barrel-aged root beer are a must.

map

Don’t miss the chance to book a seat at this extraordinary, high-end pop-up — location to be announced — from chef Donald Young, who won a Michelin star at Temporis. Now he’s offering special 15-course feasts to a small number of diners at a time, creating modern American fare with Midwestern ingredients — and yes, there will definitely be duck.

EvaDeans Bakery & Cafe Wilmette

map

Is this Wilmette gem a full-service croissant-to-carrot-cake bakery, or a bright and homey restaurant serving everything from breakfast to late lunch, with a saucy cocktail program on the side? Yes to both. Chefs Garrett VanBergen and Jory Downer and pastry whiz Jordana Downer combine their excellent talents, and as a result, EvaDeans is a must.

Lady Dahlia Tequila Bar Mt. Prospect

map

Birdcage lampshades, bright flowers cascading from the ceiling, acres of natural wood, a sleek white bar — and almost a hundred premium Tequilas and mezcals … What more could you ask for? How about a menu offering three kinds of guacamole plus an array or tacos, fajitas, and Oaxacan-style pizzas — perfect foils for all that agave? Yes, please.

Niche Geneva

map

A cozy and comfortable place, Niche couldn’t have found a better name for itself. This warm Geneva standby’s rightly celebrated for its internationally accented American menu, its encyclopedic list of whiskeys from no less than three continents, and its prestige wine list — and did we mention all the cotton candy you can eat at the end of your meal?

Sushi | Bar Chicago River North

map

Unconventional is one way of putting the experience at this 12-seat sushi experience hidden behind an unmarked door inside Lady May. All 17 courses come with surprises, whether it’s everything bagel spice sprinkled on aged bluefin akami, or shaved coconut on top of kanpachi. Get the wine and sake pairing and enjoy the ride.

DIEGO West Town

map

The colorful, casual digs belie just what chef Stephen Sandoval is throwing down here. The Baja vibe is real at the West Loop neighborhood spot, from the street-art graffiti to faded yellow walls and blue tiled floors. Beach shack bites like shrimp and octopus tostadas and fish tacos go swimmingly with excellent cocktails, like a Mexican Negroni.

About Last Knife – Arlo Chicago Chicago Loop

map

Tucked inside the Arlo, About Last Knife is one of those places you’re happy to stumble across at the exact moment when you need a shrimp cocktail and, um, a cocktail. But don’t stop there: A slice of beef Wellington, a bowl of cheesy French onion soup, and a classic Caesar are just the right speed.

Tacombi – Fulton Market West Loop

map

It’s tacos and quesadillas, cervezas and aguas frescas, and a Yucatán beach-bar feel at this lively West Loop sensation — part of a 20-plus-unit, multi-state chain born out of a mobile taco stand in a repurposed VW bus in Playa del Carmen. Pro tip: Double your pleasure every Tuesday, with two tacos for the price of one.

One North Kitchen and Bar The Loop

map

This spacious restaurant, with its long, gently curving bar, its floor-to-ceiling windows, and its sidewalk patio ticks all the boxes with its all-day, hummus-to-burgers-to-whitefish menu. Pro tip: Sample the abbreviated (but still abundant) pre-theatre menu if you’re heading across the street to the Lyric Opera House.

Marisol Chicago Streeterville

map

Jason Hammel, whose Lula Café has been a Logan Square favorite for almost 25 years, brings his market-driven American-international cuisine to this sleekly contemporary restaurant at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

SPACE 519 | The Lunchroom Gold Coast/Streeterville

map

Here’s a place worth visiting often — a bright, 40-seat breakfast-brunch-and-lunch Gold Coast hideaway inside a chic Chestnut Street shop selling apparel, accessories, and home goods. The menu is vegetable-forward (though not vegetarian) and everything is mighty fresh.

Happy Camper Old Town Old Town

map

It’s impossible not to have a good time at Happy Camper (Old Town or Wrigleyville). Sure, there’s an actual camper, tire swings, and swaths of twinkle lights that make you think you’re partying under the stars. But the pizzas — neither thick nor thin, but just right — never disappoint, the ornately garnished cocktails are fun, and an afternoon on the patio can fix many ills.
