Food magazine Bon Appétit has named Chicago as the US's Restaurant City of the Year for 2017.
Home to 35 Michelin stars, the city is “clearly America’s most exciting city to eat in right now,” according to Senior Editor Julia Kramer, herself a Chicago native.
The city is praised for the strength of both its fine dining and neighbourhood restaurant scenes, its bar food and exciting developments in both Mexican and Korean cuisines. “Where other cities fall into soulless trend cycles, Chicago has a way of generating distinctively personal restaurants,” says Kramer.
