Chicago

The Second City

Chicago’s food scene is dynamic. There is a willingness from chefs and diners alike to experiment with food, which means every time I visit something new and exciting is happening. From classic Chicago deep-dish pizza joints to once-in-a-lifetime culinary experiences, Chicago holds strong as one of America’s most diverse and fascinating food towns. Here is a list of some of my favorite restaurants and hotels in Chi-town.
