In our last post we noted that the star culinary publication Bon Appetit just named Chicago the Restaurant City of the Year 2017. And now they’ve just issued their Top 10 New Restaurants 2017 and, we’re delighted to see, two Chicago restaurants made this list: Giant Restaurant in Logan Square, and Elske Restaurant in West Loop, each located in one of the hottest ‘hoods in the city these days.
The Bon Appetit judges spent almost three months on the road. “This year’s list is the most eclectic and culturally diverse one we’ve ever compiled,” says special projects editor Julia Kramer. The 10 they picked were the ones whose ” meals stuck with us the longest. These are the places you want to go back to multiple times.”
Both Chicago winners have been put together by Chicago chefs with experience in some very high profile restaurants. Here’s what Bon Appetit has to say about Giant and about Elske.
Consider putting these two on the top of your must-hit list.
