Following three days of voting, Eater readers have spoken: Brendan Sodikoff's Au Cheval is a future classic. The spin on a diner in the West Loop with the heralded burger won in a landslide, picking up 56 percent of the total vote—more than all of the other nominees combined.
Eater polled a wide group of chefs, restaurateurs, and bartenders, who narrowed down Chicago's hottest spots to a final seven on Monday. The vote went public the following day, when readers had an opportunity to predict which would become a future classic. That future classic is Au Cheval.
