100 Best Restaurants in Chicago

Well, folks. It’s about damn time we got this one out there.

We put all of our foodie knowledge together and came up with a straight-forward list of the absolute best restaurants around Chicago. 100 to be exact. Yes, our rubric is vague. No, they’re not in a particular order, and no, we’re not giving out our reasons on why we chose any of these spots. So, if you don’t like it, well… we ain’t sorry.

These are the 100 best restaurants in Chicago, hands down.
