World-famous for its deep-dish pizza and Chicago-style hot dogs, the Windy City has quickly become one of the most acclaimed destinations for food-lovers and aficionados alike. Chicago ties New York for the most Five Diamond restaurants in any American city with seven and added more than any other city to AAA’s list in 2014. Restaurant voted Grant Achatz’s Michelin three-star Alinea as Chef’s Choice best restaurant in the world in 2013, though Chicago’s food renaissance extends far beyond this one restaurant. Harkening back to its meatpacking district roots, the River West region and Randolph Street corridor boast premier restaurants founded and run by some of the most celebrated chefs today, such as Graham Elliot, Rick Bayless, and Stephanie Izard.
