Think Chicago is all about the deep-dish pizza? Delish as that may be, there’s plenty more to sink your teeth into when you’re in Chi-town. Here are just three iconic restaurants to whet your appetite:
Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder
Perma-packed Lincoln Park flop specialising in gooey pizza pot pies. Order the diet-be-damned Mediterranean bread or an Oven Grinder sarnie to accompany – you are in Chicago after all.
Girl & The Goat
The goat’s always bleatin’ good at home gal and Top Chef-fan fave Steph Izard’s bustling, rustic-urban small-plater. Homey, hip and envelope-pushing – foodies’ll have a field day.
Green Street Meats
Down the muralled alley to this dark n’ twinkly Texan smokehouse and barn – aka. meat heaven – where carnivores go wild for canteen-style barbecue chops. Moist towelettes at the ready, and yeehaw we go!
