Here at Choose Chicago, we believe one of the best ways to jumpstart a truly epic experience in Chicago is to get ideas from the people who know the city best. Our locals, some of the greatest ambassadors of Chicago you can find, are invaluable resources for discovering the greatest things to see and do in the city.
This is a tough question this week, because there's no end to the unforgettable meals you can have in the city. There's a reason the James Beard Foundation recently brought its awards gala to Chicago and will do so the next two years. We have one of the premier restaurant industries on the globe run by some of the most well-known celebrity chefs. Here are some of our locals' favorite dining experiences in Chicago.
