$$$$
Mexican | River North (Chicago), Chicago

Salsas are outstanding, with depths of flavor, balance, and complexity. Guacamoles, especially the one with oregano, are first-rank national class. Spectacular margaritas seem a touch too sweet on their own, but the extra bit is needed to cut the heat of most dishes. Ceviches and tacos also good but not in the same class, as the mentioned features. More

Contemporary American | Lincoln Square, Chicago

This was our second time dining at goosefoot, and it did not disappoint. From selecting very reasonably-priced champagne and white wine from the menu (with Nina's help-of course, you can still BYOB!) through the first course of perfectly cooked scallop in coconut milk, the sublime prairie soup, the perfection of their pasta and on through dessert, our entire party was equally parts enthralled and pleased with both the taste and the presentation. goosefoot is one of the only restaurants in town where the tasting menu has NO disappointments AND provides the perfect amount of food (no more or no less than what our stomachs could handle). Chris and Nina have created a wonderful environment, warm and welcoming without the usual fine dining stuffiness, and Nina is an amazing hostess. My wife and I will make many return trips to the future! More

Dawali Mediterranean KitchenDawali Mediterranean Kitchen
$$$$
Mediterranean | Pilsen, Chicago

Dawali Mediterranean Kitchen, located in Chicago, serves mouth-watering dishes to delighted guests. From light options, such as the lentil soup, tabbouli salad and hummus, to heartier plates like chicken shish kabab and beef shawerma, both served over basmati rice and a side salad, it is quickly evident that freshness is key at Dawali. The falafel sandwich is unlike any other, with fried eggplant, cauliflower and potatoes added to kick up the flavor. When guests are undecided, they can try the appetizer sampler with hummus, baba ghannouj, ful mudammas and masaka dips with falafel, or they can create a combo meal of their own choosing. House-made desserts, such as the baklava or creme brulee end the meal perfectly along with a strong Arabic coffee.There are also plenty of options for vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free eaters, proving that at Dawali Mediterranean Kitchen, variety is indeed the spice of life.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.
