Experiencing new restaurants and dining out is quite possibly my favorite Chicago activity – especially once the weather gets colder and outdoor events get a little less fun.
So, the short answer to the question of where I’ve been eating in Chicago is many, many places.
The long answer to that question will be answered in this post.
I’m always resarching Chicago food bloggers and Instagrammers to find those hidden gems that I haven’t been to yet. There’s almost TOO many places to try. Is that possible? It’s a good thing I don’t plan on moving away any time soon.
Recently, I moved to the West Loop area which is home to Restaurant Row. I don’t think it needs a description. Because of this, I’ve been going out to dinner even more and spending too much money on food.
Am I okay with this? Absolutely.
Below are a few of my favorites from the past couple months. Resturants, diners, bars, bakeries, etc. that I highly recommend.
