Chi-town may be the world capital for deep dish pizza but dumplings from around the world might just be our next culinary trademark. Chicago supplies a mind-blowing selection of  dumpling versions and variations, including beet-juice infused varenyky from the Ukraine and whitefish stuffed gyoza from Japan. Inherit Chicago's World Dumpling Fest (coming up October 7) offers up a stellar line up of choices but for foodies who prefer to do their tastings on their own, check out these dumplings and restaurants.

Located in a chic new building where State and Rush converge in the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood, Maple & Ash continues to receive attention as one of the city’s compelling new steakhouses, with an outside seating area that draws looks from passers-by and a menu curated by Chef Danny Grant that has received thoughtful accolades from all corners.
