From Our Editors

"A nice job . . . too much of a nice job!" Such was Guy Fieri's verdict on the addictive meatballs at Panozzo's Italian Market when he came to visit for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Fieri is one of many who have fallen for these morsels, crafted from natural pork, spices, and black currants. It's not all meatballs at Panozzo's, however—the menu and deli cases also hold rustic items such as house-made porchetta and herb-roasted chicken from Gunthorp Farm, one of several local sources for the meat and produce.

Growing up in Chicago’s Pullman neighborhood, owner Mike Panozzo relished the community atmosphere of the local Italian markets. When he and his wife Ellen moved to the South Loop, they leaped at the opportunity to establish their own neighborhood gathering spot. They recruited chef John Asbaty to bring the menu beyond the standard Italian deli, a task he prepared for with stints in the kitchens of Trio and Alinea. Along with original dishes, Panozzo's stocks treats from local producers such as Zarlengo's Italian Ice, Nona Santi's Biscotti, and Passion House Coffee Roasters.

Chicago Restaurant Guide

Everyone knows that Chicago has outstanding deep dish pizza and hot dogs, but throughout the city, there is a veritable banquet of appealing options that go beyond this traditional Chicago fare. Some of the hottest chefs in the world call this city home and the Chicago restaurants at which they ply their trade are the "it" spots for innovative and cutting edge dining.

With Lake Michigan lapping up against the edge of the city, Chicago's restaurants have access to some of the most delicious freshwater fish in the world. Few restaurants do fresh seafood better than GT Fish & Oyster. Although traditional dishes, including chowder and fish and chips, are on the menu, guests keep returning for the restaurant's more unusual offerings. The brandade croquettes mix freshly caught brandade with just the right amount of herbs and breadcrumbs for a modern take on the fishcake, while the fresh oysters have a delicious homemade sauce drizzled over the top.

For freshly made pie and hamburgers the size of a dinner plate, head over to Grange Hall Burger Bar. More adventurous diners can choose the nine-ounce burgers, while those wanting something lighter might choose the six-ounce. Beef is not the only burger choice, as the restaurant also offers wild rice and veggie burgers and turkey burgers. The pie menu changes every month, and each slice comes with a dollop of homemade ice cream on top.

The Slurping Turtle wants to change the way people think about Asian cuisine. This upscale Chicago restaurant offers unique dishes, including chicken fried in duck fat and a salad topped with delicate pieces of freshly cooked octopus. Those in the mood for something sweet can try the cream puff filled with a rich and tasty coconut cream.

Modern cuisine and French cooking come together at Goosefoot. This restaurant shows how much restaurants in the city have changed in recent years. Every dish on the menu offers a twist on traditional French dishes, such as the lobster and mushroom entree in a curry-infused broth. Eating at this restaurant is a unique experience, as the menu changes with the seasons.

Now is a hot time for dining in Chicago because its chefs are constantly introducing new and innovative dishes. Whether it's dining out for a special occasion or relaxing with friends, there is Chicago food for every situation.
