Chicago is the largest city of the American Midwest and the third largest city in the U.S. Founded in 1830, the city was Established as a water transit hub; the city evolved into an industrial metropolis, processing and transporting the raw materials of its vast hinterland. 

With almost 3 million people today, Chicago has 100 neighborhoods, 36 annual parades, 40 annual film festivals, 250 live music venues, 600 parks, 29 beaches, more than 7,300 restaurants, 7 AAA Diamond-rated restaurants, and even 144 dog-friendly eateries. It’s definitely a destination for foodies. This great city also has 26 Michelin-starred restaurants and 40 James Beard Award-winning restaurants as well.  


What’s Old is Now a Trendy Foodie Spot

In a city that was known as the meatpacking capital of the nation, things have certainly changed in Chicago. In 1971, the famed Union Stockyards were closed while “Fulton Market’s slaughterhouses have been replaced by food halls, swanky cocktail bars, and gastropubs, the city’s steakhouses remain bustling, mostly due to tourists, as well as businesspeople and conventioneers armed with buoyant expense accounts.”

Today the area that is known as the West Loop is a haven for foodies. “A former meat-packing district, the West Loop has become one of the most dynamic dining destinations in the city.” The area is now filled with some of the city’s most popular restaurants. Here, you’ll find Restaurant Row and Greektown. When you’re not eating your way through the area, you can check out art galleries, boutique hotels, and fun shops.

피자시카고의 딥 디쉬 피자를 가까이서 만나보세요

  • High oven temperatures when baking “with plentiful amounts of cornmeal sprinkled in the pan to help insulate the bread”
  • 매우 긴 조리 시간
