Michelin's Bib Gourmand list is revered by travelers as a sign of a quality meal at an affordable price. The 2022 list adds seven new restaurants while removing 10. Altogether, 55 restaurants are represented. This is the tire company’s 11th year in Chicago.
Eater Chicago placed the city's Bib Gourmands on a map to make it easier to visually compare Michelin's selections using geography.
One of the previous members, Jam, fell off the list due to its permanently closure in 2020, and another, Kasama, bounced over to the star list. Other removals include Avlí Taverna, Ceres Table, County Barbecue (which changed ownership in 2021), Daguan Noodle, Kai Zan, Lonesome Rose, San Soo Gab San, and Untitled Supper Club.
Pizzeria Bebu, which has been closed since March 2020, remains on the list despite the presence of a “space available” sign in its Lincoln Park storefront which has been cleared out.
