We’re glad Jeni’s has so many locations in Chicago, since the ice cream here is outstanding. It’s rich and creamy, with excellent mix-ins (plus, everything is made from scratch). On top of all that, the people behind the counter are incredibly patient - they will stand there while you try every single flavor without acting as annoyed as they have every right to be.

Awesome shellfish in a basement dive bar complete with year-round Christmas lights. Go eat all the crab and drink all the beer.
Crisp is one of Chicago’s best wing spots, and it’s all about the Seoul Sassy jumbo wings here. Get them delivered or pop in for a quick bite.
