5 best restaurants in Chicago
Our favourite places to eat. Enjoy awesome food and stunning decor.
The Bristol
Nose to tail and glass to mouth
They say The Bristol does things with animals others wouldn't dare. In a culinary sense, that is! The proof of the pudding is the crowd that frequents this Chicago establishment: off-duty chefs, food critics and hungry gastronomes. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us. Nose to tail cooking has never been more delicious and the service, atmosphere and hundreds of wines from which to choose stretch from smile to smile!

Everything goes better with wine
What’s better than a great meal? A great meal with wine. This wine-centric restaurant delivers both in style. The food-cues hail from the Mediterranean, using fresh Midwestern ingredients. The wine is the star though. Hearty peasant wines from small producers in Italy, Spain and France mean, whichever dish you order, there will be the perfect liquid accompaniment. And with bottles starting from just $20, you couldn’t ask for better value. Raise your glasses!

Longman & Eagle
From the farm to your table
Yes, you could go for frozen food reheated in a microwave but, no doubt, Gordon Ramsay would be giving the chef a kitchen nightmare! There’s no chance of that happening here though. Only the freshest, most seasonal ingredients go into their creations, with a constantly changing menu to prove it. And if that’s not enough to tempt you, check out their eminently drinkable whiskey selection. It’s unparallelled – captured by their slogan “whiskey for your mouth, not our shelves”.

Antique Taco
Tacos stand the test of time
How exactly does one combine a taco restaurant with an antique retail store? It sounds like an odd-combo but, in fact, it’s a match made in heaven. Taco fillings run the range (and dive the ocean depths) with heart beef and crispy fish. Your dessert choice has to be Abuelita’s Pop Tart with Mexican chocolate and marshmallow filling. Decadence has never tasted that good! They also make a mean Margarita, and if you have cash to spare, buy an antique lamp on your way out!
1360 N Milwaukee Ave, Wicker Park
Tel: +1 773 687 8697  www.antiquetaco.com
Urban Belly
Give your tummy a treat
Pork belly and clove-tinged broth? Lamb and brandy dumplings? Rice cakes topped with chicken and melon? Food sounding that good better live up to expectations – and, at Urban Belly, it does.
This is comfort food at its finest – and the relaxed atmosphere means you can enjoy those tastes at your leisure. If you’ve got children, there’s an equally delicious kids menu. But, whatever your age, go for the PB&J soft serve. Why should kids have all the fun?
