The space here reminds us of a furniture store - there’s a large waiting area with a fireplace and couches that look staged - but you can forgive that once you’re seated and start eating. Nothing on the Mediterranean small-plates menu is bad, but it’s the vegetable dishes, like the roasted fennel served in a citrus broth with grapefruit and oranges, that stand out. Come here for date night, or to catch up with friends at the bar.

bopNgrill is a cheap and quick eats Korean-American fusion spot. We’ve turned it into a new dance move.
Fish Bar is like the offspring of a New England fish shack that spent some time in New Orleans. Nothing wrong with that.
Entente serves high-end food at reasonable prices in a cool Lakeview space with A$AP Rocky in the background. Makes no sense, but works great.

Smyth serves Virginia-inspired tasting menus in the West Loop, and it’s one of the best restaurants in Chicago.
Exceptional and impressive. That’s what comes to mind when describing the Korean-American food at Parachute.
Oyster Bah is a Chicago attempt at a New England seafood shack. It's solid, but not Maine.

Classy without being overly pretentious. Riccardo Trattoria is one of our favorite Italian restaurants around.
Arguably the best pizza in town. Spacca Napoli is doing Neapolitan pies the way they're meant to be done.
