Restaurants in Chicago, IL

Chicago has more distinctive local specialties than any other city. Some are unique, such as Italian beef, breaded steak sandwiches, chicken vesuvio, and shrimp de jonghe. Others were invented here or taken to unequalled extremes, like deep dish pizza, hot dogs dragged through the garden, Chicago mix caramel corn, and, arguably, the corned beef sandwich. Hyperbole aside, Chicago has a dizzying variety of eateries, plain and fancy, traditional and cutting-edge, foreign and domestic. South Side soul food, cooked in aquarium smokers, is in a class by itself. Quality, and quantity, of portions at the great steak houses defies modesty. At least two of the city’s donut shops would be among the nation’s top five. And pizza culture beyond the original deep dish is always expanding.
