Where Chicago - - NEWS -

Chicago chefs dish out the best food in the coun­try—find out where to get it.

Full dis­clo­sure: I’m not a foodie. That’s al­most trea­sonous to ad­mit here in Chicago, but I’m learn­ing. Yes, too much of the food I eat comes in nugget form, but I’ve mas­tered how to pro­nounce fois gras, I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced var­i­ous tast­ing menus and I fi­nally un­der­stand it’s poor form to ask the chef if my food can be “lasagna-ed.” Still, Chicago is home to some of the world’s fore­most culi­nary ex­perts. We’ve got 26 Miche­lin-starred restau­rants (we ex­am­ine which are worth a tourist’s time on page 6); we’re home to the James Beard Awards and have 10 chefs or restau­rants nom­i­nated as fi­nal­ists (fin­gers crossed they all win on May 1); and nowhere can match our steak or pizza. We’re equally am­bi­tious when it comes to bev­er­ages: Just check out Rockit Ranch Pro­duc­tions’ new Fellini­in­spired bar, Otto Mezzo (page 10). If you’re feel­ing epi­cu­ri­ous, there’s no bet­ter city in the world.
