Gourmet Live spent some time dining and drinking in Chicago and they came up with a pretty solid list of how to spend 24 hours eating in our city. Saying that "for food lovers, Chicago is simply the place to be at this moment in time," the article starts up north in Andersonville at the Swedish Bakery and Ann Sather for breakfast and even gives a more upscale alternate with Kanela in Lakeview.
It name checks Green City Market and the Sunday Dinner folks, and then goes into naming all the hot spots from big-name chefs doing downscale cuisine, including Xoco, Big Star, Belly Shack and Grahamwich. And instead of honing in on other places that visitors might actually have a chance getting into, the article includes the super-popular Girl & The Goat, Maude's Liquor Bar, avec, Next and GT Fish & Oyster.
The piece does do a nice job of taking people to different parts of the city, as the list finishes up with a stop at Longman & Eagle in Logan Square, where it mentions you can even spend the night at one of the rooms upstairs..
