Sueños x Soho

$$$$

Soho House in the West Loop is primarily known as an exclusive clubhouse for people posing as creatives, but fortunately, you don’t have to pay a membership fee while pretending to be in the middle of 15 different "projects" in order to eat at Sueños. This Baja-inspired spot is frequently packed, and the dimly lit dining room is full of squiggly abstract art and upbeat bass-heavy grooves. And the seafood here is delicious—from the tart and nutty snapper ceviche to the perfectly cooked pulpo skewers. And if you're looking for an exciting celebratory dinner, they also have the occasional $185 tasting menu.

Au Cheval

Au Cheval in the West Loop has our favorite Chicago burger, but that’s not the only great thing on the menu.
