Sullivan's Restaurant, Chicago Chicago Steakhouses
If you ask any concierge in town where to go for steak, they will most likely mention Morton's and Sullivan's Steakhouses. Either one of these Chicago steakhouses will give you a dining experience you won't soon forget. Most would agree these are two of the best Chicago restaurants, hands down.
Breakfast Plate Breakfast in Chicago
What could be better after partying in Chicago than waking up with a scrumptious breakfast Chicago-style? I recommend Ina's, for a diner feel big on flavors and easy on the budget. The fresh-squeezed OJ is outstanding. On weekends try The Grand Lux Cafe for unbeatable atmosphere and delectable food choices. Try to get a seat overlooking Michigan Ave if you can.
Green Zebra Vegetarian Plate Vegetarian Bites
Two of the best vegetarian restaurants in Chicago are The Green Zebra and Loving Hut. The locals rave about both of these Chicago vegetarian restaurants. The food choices are amazing.
Tapas Plate Tapas Style Restaurants
Tapas just means small plates of food and have become trendy in American cities. At Chicago tapas restaurants, like Emilio's Tapas and Cafe Ba Ba Reba, diners can order several different small plates and share.
Dessert Plate Delicious Desserts
One of my favorite desserts in Chicago is the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. I also love the freshly baked cupcakes and gigantic chocolate chip cookies at Hershey's Chicago. Or try the Chocolate Ganache Cake at Pop's For Champagne.

Sushi Plate Sushi in Chicago
Two of the most popular sushi Chicago restaurants are Kamehachi and Meiji. Try some of the city's most creative makimono, like Philly Crunch which is smoked salmon, wasabi cream cheese, scallions and cilantro topped with spicy salmon.
Boston Blackies, Chicago Juicy Burgers
I still remember the olive burger I had at Boston Blackie's. Oh so good! And you have to visit Billy Goat Tavern made famous by the SNL skit "Cheeseborger, Cheeseborger!" Last time I was there the decor wasn't that special, kind of dumpy actually, but who cares!
Signature Room Brunch Best Brunch
If you are in town on a Sunday, don't miss brunch at the top of the John Hancock building in The Signature Room. The food is amazing and you can not beat the view. Another Sunday favorite is the House of Blues Gospel Brunch. Food is outstanding and the entertainment could not be better. We took our kids there when they were younger and were seated in one of the boxes overlooking the stage. WOW!
Italian Meal Italian in Chicago
At Buca Di Beppo, meals are served family style and the atmosphere is so fun. Try to get seated at the Pope table if you can. Quartino is one of the best Chicago Italian restaurants and wine bar with a quaint atmosphere and an excellent menu.
Costas Restaurant, Chicago Greek in Chicago
Don't miss Costa's for old world charm, live piano music and genuine Greek specialties. Another choice is Venus. One reviewer stated "atmosphere was great, the wait staff was fun and attentive, great overall experience."
