If you’re going to Chicago for a quick business trip over the weekend or going there for a weeklong vacation to celebrate a special occasion; you absolutely have to make dining and drinking one of your top objectives. The cuisine of this metropolis is really starting to pick up steam.

The following is a concise 5 place list of restaurants in the Chicago area.


It’s possible that you’re unaware, but there are an absurdly high number of former Top Chef contestants living in Chicago. Monteverde in the West Loop is home to both and is widely considered to have Chicago’s finest Italian cuisine. Every pasta dish is delicious, especially the cacio-e-pepe, and it’s cheap and you don’t have to get dressed up (unless you want to). If you wish to try the ragu alla napoletana, be prepared to try to fit the inevitable leftovers in your hotel mini-fridge (a massive dish full of fusilli, sausage, meatballs, and a large braised pork shank).

Pequod’s Pizzeria

Chicago’s deep dish pizza is famous worldwide; we probably don’t have to tell you that. Especially if it’s your first trip in this city, you should sample some. Where, though? Get started at Lincoln Park at Pequod’s. Deep dish pizza in a “caramelised” pan style is on the menu (a.k.a. the burnt edges of crispy cheese around the outside of the pie). The pizzas are so good that they may spark a long-running rivalry with your New York City pals.

J.P. Graziano Grocery & Sub Shop

Established in 1937, long before the West Loop became Chicago’s dining Mecca, this family-run Italian deli and sub shop has become a Chicago institution. Inside are some of the best Italian subs and sandwiches in the city, yet the building’s industrial façade hasn’t altered since the area was full of meatpacking facilities.

Southport Grocery and Cafe

The Lakeview location is ideal for a quick breakfast during the work week. Even on the weekends, it’s worth seeing, but it may get very busy, so try to go in the morning if possible. The bread pudding pancakes and the grown-up pop tarts are two of our favourite items, but everything is delicious. You should also grab some baked items to go. The snacks are perfect for a midnight snack in your hotel room.

MingHin Cuisine

MingHin in Chinatown is open from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m., every day of the year, and serves consistently delicious dim sum, making it our top pick for the best dim sum in the city. This is the place to go if you’re in Chicago over the holidays and you’re wanting BBQ pork, sesame balls, and a salted yolk bun. Then, head over to one of the nearby karaoke clubs and sing your heart out.

Now that we have told you about 5 of the best places where you can go and have the best time of your lives in Chicago . We hope that the next time you visit Chicago or are hungry while in the state you will know exactly where to go.
