Where to Eat & Drink

My absolute fave thing to do is to eat and drink… cause duh, so I put together a little list of the top places in the city to do both!

If you are traveling from out of town, or just need to try out a new place, this is for you. If you are anything like me, and screenshots OpenTable restaurants, these are my tried and true spots in Chicago.

  1. Fulton Market Kitchen- This one is my for real favorite right now. I am such a lover of art and food, and this place provides both. The food was pretty great, and the atmosphere was even better.
  2. Velvet Taco– Enough said.
  3. Katana- I love this spot- the sushi is so good and the atmosphere is very fun and light.
  4. Bodega- Chicago is notorious for speakeasies, but the best part about this one is its inside an ice cream shop. Be careful to not go to the wrong Bodega!
  5. Tanta– DREAMY Peruvian food at this spot, lots of seafood and yummy things. One of the best places I’ve been to!
  6. Fig and Olive– This is the cutest little restaurant found in the Gold Coast of Chicago. Super elegant dishes and interiors, with a beautiful bar in the center ( very insta)
  7. Somerset– A beautiful restaurant with all American food. One of those spots that are perfect for a summer day or evening, with a gorgeous interior design and strung lights outdoors.
  8. Steak 48– This one is for the specialist occasions. My boyfriend and I are convinced this is the best steak house in all of Chicago, excellent  service and the tastiest desserts.
  9. La Josie– Located in West Loop, the best spot for a casual Mexican meal. This spot does not disappoint, the food is always super satisfying beyond regret.
  10. RPM Steak– A local favorite, the menu is great for any dish and they have a great bar to socialize at! (Anthony approved)
  11. The Hoxton Hotel- The foyer of this hotel turns into a lounge area with cozy chairs and a cute bar. This is the perfect spot for a Sunday afternoon to have an avocado toast and a cocktail.
  12. Etta– Located in Wicker Park, this is a modern Italian restaurant with yummy pasta dishes and cocktails!
