The 2016 edition of the MICHELIN Guide Chicago awards 22 restaurants with star honors, eateries that are a mix of long-standing favorites and attention-grabbing newcomers. Also in the little red guide are 58 Bib Gourmand winners, recognized for their incredible value.

The Chicago restaurants selected by Michelin are share several attributes — brilliant chefs, dishes executed with perfection, and excellent service among them — and now on top of that, they're all some of the hottest tables in town.

The annual MICHELIN Guide is an international benchmark in fine dining. A standard recognized around the world. The rigorous selection process considers five key elements: 1) product quality; 2) preparation and flavors; 3) the chef's personality as revealed through his or her cuisine; 4) value for money; and 5) consistency over time and across the entire menu.

Check out the 2016 selections below and make your reservations today! And of course, share those great food shots with us @choosechicago: InstagramTwitterFacebook... we're foodie obsessed here!
