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.
