Chicago has a new one-Michelin-star restaurant in the Michelin Guide to Chicago 2019, the only new addition to the Windy City Guide this year.
Temporis, a 20-seat spot in West Town offering "Creative New American tasting menus," joins the Michelin Guide to Chicago for the first time, having opened in January 2017. According to the Guide, "The restaurant is driven by the passion of the chefs and their small team. The food is creative, personal and crafted with product that reaches the highest level of freshness." One Michelin star is awarded to a restaurant that is "very good in its category," according to the official classification.
However, Grant Achatz's Alinea is now Chicago's only three-Michelin-star restaurant, after Grace was forced to shutter its doors late last year following a failed attempt by chef Curtis Duffy and General Manager Michael Muser to purchase the restaurant from its owner.
The two and one star lists otherwise remain identical to last year, with Chicago staying on 22 Michelin-starred restaurants in total.
