There’s more to Chicago’s food scene than deep-dish pizza, (though we won’t pretend that their deep-dish is anything less than spectacular). Chi-town is a city of many neighborhoods, offering a diverse array of options, prices, and ambiance. With New York City ingenuity grounded in Midwestern sensibilities, dinner in the Windy City is a true event, guaranteed to turn any skeptic into a “foodie” looking to nosh on flights to Chicago.
Carnevale’s deliciously flavored Latin-inspired dishes are perfectly paired with margaritas, caipirinhas, and award-winning mojitos. If you’re in the Full River District and are feeling adventurous, try the signature “cotton candy cocktail”.
For the best Chicago beef, don’t miss Kinzie. With exclusive cuts, and over 150 bottled selections, Kinzie blends traditional flavors while mixing current food trends.
Mollie’s Public House
This cute Irish gem isn’t too far from the airport for those popping in for the night. Mollie’s menu features affordable comfort food, with delicious add-ons like their baked brie and O-Hummus dip.
The Purple Pig
The Purple Pig is a hotspot for Chicago locals and tourists alike. The wide selection of cured meats and house made smears should not be missed, and the chorizo stuffed olives are exceptional.
Chicago deep dish pizza is not to be missed, and Lou’s trademarked Buttercrust is the best way to try it. With restaurants scattered throughout Chicago, there’s no reason not to go. (Don’t miss the fried cheddar cheese cubes!)
Serving brunch, lunch, and dinner, Hub 51 serves quality, affordable food all day. But the dessert and drinks at the end might just be the best part of your night.
