Even though many Chicagoans elect to stay at home as much as possible during the winter months, there’s a large group of locals that don’t let a little snow spoil their moods. Eater Chicago dedicates the latest edition of the Eater 38 to them, the folks who will throw on a coat, put on their boots, and support restaurants even with a little ice on the ground.
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 that have pushed culinary boundaries. This list is for locals who want to make the most out of their nights. It’s also for visitors unfamiliar with the city.
The winter update brings a pair of restaurants joining the party. The city now has two restaurants with a full three Michelin stars, so it’s natural to bring this West Loop tasting menu restaurant onboard. The second restaurants opened in 2020 and has finally found its stride, showing Chicago that chef Erick Williams’ Virtue isn’t alone on the South Side.
Stay warm, Chicago.
