Below is our unofficial guide to eating in Chicago. Soon we will have one for LA. If you're headed to Chicago, read on.
Some of our favorite restaurants are (in no particular order):
Hot Doug's (RIP...!)
Grange Hall Burger Bar
Black Dog Gelato
Star of Siam
The Bongo Room
Honey Butter Fried Chicken
If you're visiting Chicago, we have tons of suggestions of how to spend your visit. We lived downtown and taught ourselves what's worth it (Architecture tour!) and what wasn't (Navy Pier). If you come in the summer, bring a swimsuit--there's beach for miles and Lake Michigan touches the city. If you come in the winter, bring a scarf and a down jacket--the cold will chew your face off.
