Chicago's Best Restaurants
Posted by Charlie Harris

We've updated and revised our list of the best locally owned restaurants in the Windy City and the greater Chicagoland area. Offering everything from Italian beef, hefty hot dogs and decadent deep dish pizza to fantastic Greek fare, innovative Mexican food and trendsetting contemporary cuisine at some of the country's most recognized restaurants, Chicago is not a city for feeble appetites. But there are few places in the world we'd rather go to put on ten layers before putting on ten pounds in a weekend.  

The latest additions to our Top 100 list include Girl & the Goat, GT Fish & Oyster, Longman and EagleMaude's Liquor Bar, Piece Brewery & Pizzeria, Purple Pig, Ria, Ruxbin, Sprout, and Takashi. We've also added another 40 restaurants in the city and suburbs and designated them as local favorites.
