Mapplr's favorite restaurants in Chicago

Chicago is best known for its architecture and lively urban scene (music, theater, nightclubs). Carl Sandburg’s poem “Chicago” published in 1916 still conveys the city’s atmosphere, almost a century later, long after it lost most of its industrial and manufacturing base. Although most foodies look to the coasts for inspiration, Chicago has a lot of excellent restaurants. Here are Mapplr’s favorites in Chicago.
