Chef's Special Cocktail Bar
Jason Vincent of Bib Gourmand Giant and chefs Aaron Kabot and Tom Scodari are behind this wonderful and enjoyable Chinese-American throwback in Bucktown where nostalgia is at the forefront of the concise menu.

Ciccio Mio
The portions here are hearty, the flavors bold, and the pastas made in-house. Don't miss the lasagna Bolognese rotolo.

Joe's Imports
This Italian kitchen in West Loop contrasts ingredients and textures in such comforting plates as cacio e pepe finished with Sichuan peppercorns and lemon rind.

Kasama
Chefs Genie Kwon and Tim Flores, both formerly of Oriole, offer a contemporary Bucktown restaurant dedicated to Filipino cuisine and spectacular pastries.

Mama Delia
The kitchen team is focused on cooking that is both ingenious and satisfying. To wit: pulpo canario is served with confit baby potatoes and chicharrón-infused olive oil.

Munno Pizzeria & Bistro
The Neapolitan-inspired pizza here may not be made in the traditional wood-burning oven, but those electric deck ovens still manage to turn out deliciously puffy and lightly charred crusts.

Perilla
Chef Andrew Lim's forte lies in his contemporary take on familiar Korean food. Here you will find tables spread with delicious banchan tailed by Waygu beef tartare accented with Asian pear.

Soulé
Chef-owner Bridgette Flagg's excellent version of fried chicken is crisp, juicy, and well-seasoned.

Tzuco
Chef Carlos Gaytán and his team craft creative Mexican dishes that at once feel traditional and inspired.

Vajra
Nepalese executive chef Min B. Thapa is no stranger to the Chicago dining scene. His cooking is replete with wonderfully, rich flavors and unique methods.
