I have a partial list here:


If I had to single out a few restaurants that are worth visiting while
in Chicago:

Frontera Grill - regional Mexican, James Beard award winner, Rick
Bayless has a show on PBS
Hopleaf - Belgian-style pub, amazing beer selection, amazing food
Spoon Thai - Thai, be sure to get the Chicago tribune menu and the
translated Thai menu
Spacca Napoli - authentic Neapolitan style pizza and Italian
Kuma's Corner - pub with metal theme, decent beer selection and
interesting burgers named after metal bands

I'll also mention that several chefs from higher end Chicago
restaurants have been on Iron Chef America: Tru, Moto, Avenues.
