April’s milder temperatures are giving Chicagoans a little bit more bounce in their steps, and that means the occasional meal on the patio, menus adorned with ramps, and baseball’s return. It’s also time to update the Eater Chicago 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. This list is for locals who don’t get the opportunity to go out often and want to make the most out of their nights. It’s also for visitors unfamiliar with the city.
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; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
