FOOD GUIDE TO CHICAGO

Home of the National Restaurant Association Show, Chicago is the town of “good” food. From deep-dish pizza, steaks houses, indoor food markets to Soho House, we love what the city has to offer. The diversity of people, new neighborhoods, bike tours to  the architectural boat ride around Chicago, there is so much history to explore.

It’s been two years since we took a trip to Chicago, but here is our 2020 list of places to dine, sleep and explore.
