Our City Guides is from the point of view of the people we interview. A restaurant cannot be listed in our guides unless it is recommended by one of the tastemakers we’ve featured. We don’t want you to see the restaurant world through our eyes, but rather through the eyes of your favorite tastemakers in every industry. Why us? Why not them?

Farm-to-table is the theme at this Bucktown neighborhood gem, where Executive Chef Chris Pandel incorporates interesting, local ingredients into his New American menu.
