January is a typically a slow restaurant month in Chicago, but the cold winter doesn’t mean the city’s dining scene lacks heat. The latest edition of the Eater 38 proves that with the addition of two new entries.
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. The winter 2022 update adds Luella’s Southern Kitchen and Jade Court and bids farewell to Galit, and to Rye Deli & Drink, which has temporarily closed.
As of January 3, the city has mandated that those ages 5 and up be fully vaccinated and masked at public places indoors while not actively eating or drinking. 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.
