The Best of Chicago

America's Biggest Small Town
The Best of Chicago
offers a lively, refreshingly honest report on Chicago's best—and worthiest—restaurants. Discover where to get the nicest steaks in town—and that Chicago has a lot more to show for than steakhouses. Find out why it is the best place on the planet for fast, bargain-based American eats—barbecue, pizza and hot dogs… and where to find the city's charming little cafés and great ethnic spots. In The Best of Chicago you also have a hotel guide to suit every taste—and every budget; find the best lake view, coziest rooms or friendliest service. We have also sought out the slickest bars, hottest music clubs, coolest jazz joints and nightclubs as well as the best stores from designer fashions to folksy antiques. All in all, more than 1,000 frank and witty reviews!
