Four Chicago Staples, Because There’s No Place Like Home

Chicago is famous for a lot of things: Our architecture, brutal winters, and gorgeous lakes. But when it comes to cities with the best food, we’re always a part of the conversation. From deep-dish pizza, to the often imitated (but never duplicated) Chicago dog, we’ve put the midwest on the foodie map. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite Chicago staples for when you just want to embrace the best of home. 


Known for gin-centric cocktails, craft beer, and elevated bar food—but don’t miss the fresh baked cookies at midnight.


  • Au Cheval | 800 W Randolph St & Small Cheval | 1732 N Milwaukee Ave

In French diners, saying “au cheval” means “with a fried egg” but in Chicago, it’s associated with a world-famous, egg-topped burger that can’t be beat.


One of the first to make Logan Square a destination, their menu features locally sourced farm-to-table fare that’s best enjoyed at brunch. 


This storefront tavern showcases rustic dishes and a dictionary-long wine list, but they had us at just three words: beer, pork, oysters.
