The First-Rate Food

Chicago now hosts the James Beard Awards and is arguably the most exciting culinary city in the country. The best new restaurants use Midwestern ingredients with global inspiration. El Che Bar in the West Loop draws from Chef John Manion's childhood in South America for an Argentine-asado restaurant where everything from veggies to fatty lamb ribs and sizzling steaks is cooked in the wood-fired hearth. Danish-inspired Elske is more subdued and cozy, serving dishes like duck liver buckwheat tart and creamed fava beans with Nordic minimalism. Lively Proxi offers a medley of street food from around the globe as the casual little sister to elegant Michelin-starred Sepia next door.
