If you're the type of person who always needs to ask where to eat, and also what to eat at said restaurants, Time Out Chicago has your back. The "eat out" crew—David Tamarkin, Julia Kramer and Heather Shouse—revealed the top 100 best things they ate and drank in Chicago in 2010.
The list is vast and hits low- and high-end spots and breaks it out in 11 different categories from "southern" to "small bites" to "bread" and "dessert." Just some of the things we have our eye on: the suckling pig at Balsan; burrata flatbread at Terzo Piano; hot dog at Seasons Lounge and Bar; simply hotcakes at m. henrietta; and the housemade pappardelle with Maine lobster at Henri. And to make things easier if you want to play along, they have a handy Dish Wish List for you to print out and check things off as you devour them. Bon Appetit!
