Chicago’s put away its shorts and flip flops as baseball season is done for both sides of town and so is summer. With that, it’s time to present the latest iteration of the Eater 38.
This collection of Chicago’s best restaurants provides answers for the classic question: “Where would you dine if you had one night in the city?” The list recognizes some all-time greats and restaurants who have pushed culinary boundaries. For the fall update, the listing adds Jeong, Oriole, Rye, and Pizza Fried Chicken Ice Cream. Calumet Fisheries, Vito & Nick’s, and Wherewithall takes bows after long runs. Enjoy.
As of August 20, the city has mandated that everyone wear facial coverings while indoors. For updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the city of Chicago’s COVID-19 dashboard. Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
