Girl & The Goat

Girl & The Goat is one of Chicago's trendiest and most iconic restaurants, and it is for a good reason. They offer a unique menu that one doesn't find at a regular establishment. They offer dishes such as Goat Liver Mousse, Confit Goat Belly, and Wood Oven Roasted Pig Face. One could say that dining at Girl & The Goat is a one-of-a-kind experience. Located at 809 W Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60607.

Al's #1 Italian Beef

Italian? In Chicago!? YES! It sounds strange, but this fusion is a blessing in disguise. But do not think for one moment that the picture is just an ordinary sandwich. This is an Italian Beef and not just any Italian Beef, but one from Al's #1 Italian Beef. Al's will forever be a true Chicago staple. Located at 548 N Wells St, Chicago, IL 60654.

RPM Steak


It is time to put on your nicest suit, your fanciest shoes, and pull out the wallet, because we are eating good tonight boys. RPM Steak is one of Chicago's most iconic restaurants for its modern ambiance and delicious food. The "duke" is a dry-aged ribeye steak and it is unbelievable. Get the Japanese sweet potatoes and Millionaire Potato on the side as well. And there is always room for dessert, and I recommend the Baked Alaska. Located at 66 W Kinzie St, Chicago, IL 60654.

Eat 7

The Berghoff

Who says Chicago is only good for hot dogs and pizza?? In fact, one of Chicago's most iconic restaurants doesn't even serve typical comfort food. The Berghoff offers classic German cuisine that will make you never want to try an ordinary hot dog again. And everyone knows Germans have the superior sausage. And do not get me started on their famous Creamed Spinach; it is out of this world. Located at 17 W Adams St, Chicago, IL 60603.

Gene & Georgetti

Is there a better way to end the night than at a steakhouse? No, I don't think so. But steakhouses can get very pricey, so how do you get the most bang for your buck? Well my friends, I have here the best steakhouse in all of The Windy City. George & Georgetti is praised all over the country for their incredible steaks. Ribeye, Filet Mignon, T-bone, you name it they have it. Located at 500 N Franklin St, Chicago, IL 60654.

If you want to become a real Chicagoan, there is one thing you must know, NO Ketchup On Hot Dogs!!! I do not care if you are some New Yorker who must have ketchup on their dog; the answer is No. And no one does the classic Chicago Dog better than the OG's themselves, Portillo's. Remember to ask for some of their famous fries on the side. Located at 100 W Ontario St, Chicago, IL 60654.

Nutella Cafe

"I like Nutella more than my brother,"- according to my 6-year-old sister. I mean, I wouldn't go that far, but she does have one thing right. Nutella is delicious. And there is nothing better than a restaurant dedicated to it. The Nutella Café doesn't shy away from Nutella-based foods, and my favorite is their Nutella Crepes. Located at 189 Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60601.

Smith & Wollensky

Eating with a view. That is the name of the game at one of Chicago's finest restaurants. Smith & Wollensky has a unique layout that provides a great view of the stunning Chicago River and Theatre District. It isn't all about looks at this restaurant though because they serve a delectable filet mignon. The Shellfish Tower for Two is also an amazing choice for a more fun meal. Located at 318 N State St, Chicago, IL 60654.

The Purple Pig

It's time to take a break from the Chicago dogs and the deep-dish pizza and start indulging in authentic Mediterranean cuisine. Regarded as one of the best restaurants in The Windy City, The Purple Pig offers dishes that many restaurants do not have. But in my opinion, nothing comes close to the level of the duck. Everything from its tenderness to juiciness is just perfect. Located at 444 Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60611.

Eat 1

Lou Malnati's

Is there anything more Chicago than deep-dish pizza? Some people say the hot dog, and others say The Bean, but I say they are both wrong. Deep-dish pizza has ruled Chicago for over 150 years, and there is only one place to get it from. If you think that place is Giordano's, then please leave. There is nothing better than pizza from Lou Malnati's. The crust, the cheese-pull, the sauce, everything about it is perfect. Located at 805 S State St, Chicago, IL 60605.
