What could be finer than French fries? Only French fries topped with cheese curds, gravy, and other meaty/fatty delights! Thank you, Canada, for gifting Chicago with this artery-clogging culinary delight! Try it at these spots.
It's tough to find upscale Irish food, and this charmer nails it. Great date spot that remains untouristy despite its Michigan Ave location.
Nothing short of burger heaven! Try the Smokin' Shroom if you're a fungus fan. And make sure to get it on a pretzel roll. Surprisingly tasty PB&J too!
The perfect spot to step out of your comfort zone, thanks to fried gizzards, bbq frog legs, and pickled lamb tongue. Uber-friendly service just sweetens the deal.
I love the house brews at this fun bar/grill/brewery hybrid. Tasty bar grub and TVs with the game on sweeten the deal. Check out the back room for cool weekly literary events.
A neighborhood gem with the rare Belgian menu. The beer selection is pretty awesome and the poutine is sheer comfort food. Word to the wise: Skip the belt!
You can't beat the charming outdoor space here. Small plates (mmm....poutine!) are mostly well-executed and cocktails are fab.
