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?


Lula Cafe

Recommended by: Anne Burrell (Chef/Host, Worst Cooks In America)

One of the forerunners in Chicago’s farm-to-table movement, this quirky, little place offers innovative classic dishes from constantly changing, seasonal menus. An eclectic group of waiters add to the spot’s charming, bohemian vibe. Every Monday the restaurant offers a prix-fixe farm dinner, honoring their commitment to use seasonal, local ingredients. Make a Reservation
