Chicago dining has never been better, and you’re in search of the best restaurants to visit while in The Windy City. Have you been to any of them already? Some of the featured restaurants may not be in areas you’re familiar with, but maybe that represents an opportunity to expand your horizons. And if you’re just visiting, well, here’s a look at some of the best restaurants that Chicago IL has to offer.
Let’s take a look at picks for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We will start with breakfast, and I’ve already reviewed both Batter & Berries, Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe and Eleven City Diner in other articles. They are great dining establishments, and get ready for another one. Ann Sather is a great pick, and you will find this great place to enjoy breakfast at 909 West Belmont Avenue.
Order up potato sausage, Swedish pancakes, breakfast wraps, cinnamon rolls and so much more at Ann Sather. One reviewer mentions ‘light fare,’ referencing portions for price, but there doesn’t appear to be anything light about the fare served up at this popular dining establishment. You’re going to enjoy all of your comfort foods.
Bandera Restaurant is a great pick for lunch. Its address is 535 North Michigan Avenue, and the macho salad is one of its menu highlights. Rotisserie chicken, prime rib, trout, enchiladas and more are also on the menu. Reviews point to the fact that it’s a great place for couples to enjoy a meal together, and the establishment features a nice atmosphere. Expect a great Chicago ambiance to this place.
The Purple Pig is a restaurant that keeps getting my attention. It has such a cute name, and it also offers quite the interesting menu. Do you like Mediterranean cuisine? This is your chance to perhaps try a little something different while dining out in Chicago. You will find The Purple Pig at 500 North Michigan Avenue. Pig ears are on the menu, but don’t let that scare you off. Paninis, pork belly and Sicilian Iris desserts might just be what you want to order.
These three Chicago restaurants represent great opportunities for dining out in The Windy City. You’re going to enjoy exploring everything that this city has to offer in terms of places to eat. As you get ready to pick a spot, think about what you’re hungry for and where in the city you would like to go.
