Restorani u Chicagu: 5 najboljih restorana u Chicagu

Restorani u Chicagu: 5 najboljih restorana u Chicagu

Čikaški restorani su među najboljim restoranima u Americi, ali u koje restorane u Chicagu biste trebali otići? Ako jeste u poseti Chicagu po prvi put ćete se pobrinuti da posjetite najbolje čikaške restorane.

The Daily Meal sastavio je listu Chicago's 15 najboljih restorana. Uzeli smo u obzir svaki aspekt kulinarskog iskustva koje ovi čikaški restorani nude svojim klijentima, od njihovog ambijenta i kreativnosti do njihove sposobnosti da jednostavno isporuče robu uz ukusan obrok. Bez odlaganja, ovdje su naši izbori za najbolje čikaške restorane.

Sljedeći

Hrana u Sljedeći je inventivan i uzbudljiv, a da nije lukav, a usluga je besprijekorna, a da se ne ljuti. Ali sretno pri ulasku. Postoji online rezervacijski sistem za kupovinu "karata", ali ćete se pridružiti 20.000 (da, 20.000) drugih ljudi podjednako očajnički želeći osvojiti sto.

Publican

Publican je restoran koji se fokusira na pivo, ali kuhari Paul Kahan i Brian Huston dokazuju da je to mnogo više od toga. Odležane šunke, zečja tjestenina i svinjetina samo su neke od nevjerojatnih delicija u kojima možete uživati ​​u The Publicanu, uz veliki slani desertni meni za završetak večeri.

Djevojka i koza

Restoran West Loop Stephanie Izard Djevojka i koza popularan je i kod kuhara i kod lokalnog stanovništva. Jela poput lokalno uzgojene pečene repe, boranije, bijelog inćuna, kremšnite od avokada i mrvica hljeba samo su dio razloga zašto je Izard osvojio nagradu James Cheard Foundation za najboljeg kuhara: Velika jezera 2013.

Blackbird

Sa svojim vrlo maštovitim jelovnikom koji je izveo kuhar David Posey, berba Paul Kahan iz 1997. godine Blackbird nastavlja ugoditi restoranima uvijek zanimljivim, ali nikad sasvim neobičnim kreacijama; uključujući tatarski biftek s raženim bobicama, začinjenom rotkvicom i lješnjacima; hobotnica na žaru s pastrnjakom, šipkom i prepečenim češnjakom; odležala pačja prsa sa suvim korenom peršuna i prokulicom; i Wagyu flatiron na žaru sa ugljenisanim kupusom, hrskavim lukom i kremom od pečene govedine.

Alinea

Meni na Alinea ponekad može zvučati varljivo jednostavno. Jastog s mrkvom i kamilicom, na primjer. Šta se prikazuje na tanjiru; međutim, apsolutno je originalan i gotovo uvijek zasljepljujuće dobar. Uspješno su otkrili način na koji ljudi gledaju na rezervacije u Next -u sa svojim inovativnim, nepovratnim sistemom online karata i reinterpretiranim koktelima, hranom i iskustvom u baru sa The Aviary, Grant Achatz i njegov partner Nick Kokonas također su pojačali pažnju koju posvećuju Alinei. Tamo su instalirali sistem rezervacija u stilu Next i nastavljaju gurati kovertu o tome kako ljudi misle o restoranima. U međuvremenu, Achatz dosljedno ispostavlja neke od najmaštovitijih i najukusnijih savremenih (ili modernističkih, ako želite) kuhinje u zemlji.


5 klasičnih čikaških namirnica

Ako žudite za klasičnim čikaškim iskustvom, probati najpoznatiju gradsku hranu je neophodno. Naravno, imamo hvaljenu scenu dobre večere i više mjesta s Michelinovim zvjezdicama nego što biste mogli uklopiti u samo jedno putovanje-ali i dalje volimo našu pizzu s dubokim jelima, korne sladoleda dugu milju i hrenovke u čikaškom stilu (po mogućnosti uživajte) na stadionu).

Pizza s dubokim jelima

Giordano ’s Pizza

Zaboravite na pretanke kore i oskudne preljeve. Ova voljena hrana za ugodu je onoliko izdašna koliko i dolazi, s debelom korom pečenom u dubokoj posudi koja je tradicionalno napunjena sirom i prelivena slojem krupnog umaka od rajčice. Rezultat je vruća, gnjecava planina pizza dobrote koja je pravi čikaški klasik.

Želite li sami probati? Imate dosta opcija. Postoji dugogodišnji favorit Uno Pizzeria i sestrinsko preduzeće Pizzeria Due u River North. Neki kažu da je ovo rodno mjesto pizze sa dubokim jelima, koju je 1943. godine izumio osnivač pizzerije. Danas koriste svoju prepoznatljivu mješavinu začina za izradu ukusnog umaka koji nadmašuje sve njihove ultra-duboke pite.

Sa lokacijama širom Čikaga, Lou Malnati ’s Pizzeria je još jedno odlično stajalište. Pizze se prave od ručno odabranih sastojaka, poput svježeg sira mozzarelle, dobivenog iz iste male mljekare koju su koristili više od 40 godina. Savjet iznutra: Nemojte preskočiti njihovu poznatu leptir. Također možete nabaviti svježe smrznute pizze za pečenje kod kuće.

Giordano ’s, s restoranima po cijelom gradu, dodaje svoj zaokret klasičnoj pizzi u čikaškom stilu udvostručavajući koru i puneći je sirom. Svaka kriška curi u trenutku kad je razdvojite.

I u originalu Gino ’s istočno od Chicaga, blizu Veličanstvena milja, pronaći ćete pite s dubokim jelima sa zlatnom, ljuskavom korom i gomilama sira i ljutog umaka od rajčice - i unutrašnjosti koja je gotovo toliko voljena kao i sama pizza. Ne zaboravite da ostavite svoj trag na zidovima iscrtanim grafitima pokrovitelja. Naći ćete još Gino's East pizzerija smještenih u River North i South Loop.

Hot dog u čikaškom stilu

Klasični hot dog u čikaškom stilu počeo je kao jeftin zalogaj tokom Velike depresije. Iako možda više neće koštati ni dinara, možete probati (još uvijek jeftinu) uličnu hranu po cijelom Čikagu.

Dakle, šta je zapravo hot dog u čikaškom stilu? Evo kako to učiniti ispravno-goveđi hrenovka na lepinji od maka, prelivena žutim senfom, puno ukusa, luk narezan na kockice, kriške rajčice, koplje za krastavce, sportska paprika, malo soli celera-i što je najvažnije , bez kečapa.

Još jedan znak klasičnog čikaškog psa-taj goveđi hot-dog došao je iz Bečke govedine. Osnovana 1893. godine, kompanija je prvi put predstavila svoje ćufte na Svjetskoj izložbi u Chicagu. Bio je to hit hit. Danas možete isprobati njihov originalni porodični recept u njihovoj Factory Store & amp Cafe.

Pogodite sve pouzdane upute razbacane po četvrtima Chicaga, na primjer Portillo ’s u petlji i južnoj petlji, Wiener Circle u Lincoln Park, Jim's Original u Maloj Italiji i Redhot Ranch, sa lokacijama u Bucktown i Lakeview.

Možete probati i jedno (po mogućnosti sa hladnim pivom) u a Chicago White Sox igra na Garanteed Rate Field -u ili navijanje na Chicago Cubs na Wrigley Fieldu.

Italijansko goveđe meso

Možete ga skuhati vrućim (s paprikom giardinierom) ili slatkim (sa slatkim paprikama) suhim (bez umaka), mokrim (dodatni umak na vrhu) ili umočenim (cijeli sendvič se kupa). Bez obzira kako ga naručite, okusit ćete jednu od najpoznatijih kreacija Čikaga - talijanski sendvič s govedinom. Ukusan (i neuredan) sendvič sastoji se od hrskavog talijanskog valjka natrpanog tanko narezanim i začinjenim pečenim goveđem mesom, plus vaš izbor paprika i au jus umaka (ili umaka, kako ga neka mjesta zovu).

Među lokalnim stanovništvom vodi se žestoka rasprava o tome ko ima najbolju italijansku govedinu u gradu. Al ’s govedina u Mala Italija tvrdi da je izumitelj sendviča, a od otvaranja 1938. osvojio je bezbroj nagrada. Oni se takođe zalažu za „italijanski stav“, jedini način da se jede italijanski sendvič s govedinom - laktovi na pultu, stope 18 inča od brojač i širom otvorena usta (najvažniji dio). Osim izvorne lokacije, imaju četiri ispostave po cijelom gradu.

Još jedno popularno mjesto je G. Beef iz Orleansa u River North. To je mali restoran sa ronilačkom atmosferom, ali definitivno je velikog okusa. Bilo da jedete stojeći za pultom ili sjedeći za zajedničkim stolom, u dobrom ste društvu: čak je i Jay Leno pjevao pohvale ovom mjestu. Samo ne zaboravite ponijeti gotovinu (postoji bankomat ako zaboravite), požurite s narudžbom (usluga je brza) i donesite veliki apetit.

Garrett Popcorn

Garrett Mix u poznatom Garrett Popcorn Shop je slano-slatki okus lokalne povijesti. Tajni porodični recept uključuje mješavinu Garrettovih klasičnih okusa kokica CaramelCrisp i CheeseCorn, tako da ćete dobiti malo slatkog i slanog u jednom zalogaju. Mješavina je lokalno omiljena od otvaranja radnje 1949. Naći ćete više Garrettovih lokacija širom Chicaga, a svaka nudi tone različitih okusa kokica u svojim prepoznatljivim limenkama s plavim prugama.

Original Rainbow Cone

The Original Rainbow Cone ukus je jednako dobar koliko i izgleda. Klasična čikaška poslastica je torta sa čokoladom, jagodama, Palmer Houseom (vanilija sa višnjama i orasima), pistaćima i narančastim šerpom (tim redoslijedom). To je lokalni ljetni proizvod i desert vrijedan Instagrama koji je ostao gotovo nepromijenjen od kada je prvi put izvađen 1926. Posjetite originalnu lokaciju u Chicagu Beverly kvartu ili na drugoj lokaciji Original Rainbow Cone na Navy Pier.

Oni se takođe zalažu za „italijanski stav“, jedini način da se jede italijanski sendvič s govedinom - laktovi na pultu, stope 18 inča od brojač i širom otvorena usta (najvažniji dio). Osim izvorne lokacije, imaju četiri ispostave po cijelom gradu.

Još jedno popularno mjesto je G. Beef iz Orleansa u River North. To je mali restoran sa ronilačkom atmosferom, ali definitivno je velikog okusa. Bilo da jedete stojeći za pultom ili sjedeći za zajedničkim stolom, u dobrom ste društvu: čak je i Jay Leno pjevao pohvale ovom mjestu. Samo ne zaboravite ponijeti gotovinu (postoji bankomat ako zaboravite), požurite s narudžbom (usluga je brza) i donesite veliki apetit.

Garrett Popcorn

Garrett Mix u poznatom Garrett Popcorn Shop je slano-slatki okus lokalne povijesti. Tajni porodični recept uključuje mješavinu Garrettovih klasičnih okusa kokica CaramelCrisp i CheeseCorn, pa ćete dobiti malo slatkog i slanog u jednom zalogaju. Mješavina je lokalno omiljena od otvaranja radnje 1949. Naći ćete više Garrettovih lokacija širom Chicaga, a svaka nudi tone različitih okusa kokica u svojim prepoznatljivim limenkama s plavim prugama.

Original Rainbow Cone

The Original Rainbow Cone ukus je jednako dobar koliko i izgleda. Klasična čikaška poslastica je kornet torte nabijen čokoladom, jagodama, Palmer Houseom (vanilija s višnjama i orasima), pistaćima i šerpom od naranče (tim redoslijedom). To je lokalni ljetni proizvod i desert vrijedan Instagrama koji je ostao gotovo nepromijenjen od kada je prvi put izvađen 1926. Posjetite originalnu lokaciju u Chicagu Beverly kvartu ili na drugoj lokaciji Original Rainbow Cone na Navy Pier.


5 klasičnih čikaških namirnica

Ako ste željni klasičnog čikaškog iskustva, probati najpoznatiju gradsku hranu je neophodno. Naravno, imamo hvaljenu scenu vrhunske kuhinje i više mjesta s Michelinovim zvjezdicama nego što biste mogli uklopiti u samo jedno putovanje-ali i dalje volimo našu pizzu s dubokim jelima, korne sladoleda dugu milju i hrenovke u čikaškom stilu (po mogućnosti uživajte) na stadionu).

Pizza s dubokim jelom

Giordano ’s Pizza

Zaboravite na pretanke kore i oskudne preljeve. Ova voljena hrana za ugodu je onoliko izdašna koliko i dolazi, s debelom korom pečenom u dubokoj posudi koja je tradicionalno napunjena sirom i prelivena slojem krupnog umaka od rajčice. Rezultat je vruća, gnjecava planina pizza dobrote koja je pravi čikaški klasik.

Želite li sami probati? Imate dosta opcija. Postoji dugogodišnji favorit Uno Pizzeria i sestrinsko preduzeće Pizzeria Due u River North. Neki kažu da je ovo rodno mjesto pizze sa dubokim jelima, koju je 1943. godine izumio osnivač pizzerije. Danas koriste svoju prepoznatljivu mješavinu začina za izradu ukusnog umaka koji nadmašuje sve njihove ultra-duboke pite.

Sa lokacijama širom Čikaga, Lou Malnati ’s Pizzeria je još jedno odlično stajalište. Pizze se prave od ručno odabranih sastojaka, poput svježeg sira mozzarelle, dobivenog iz iste male mljekare koju su koristili više od 40 godina. Savjet iznutra: Nemojte preskočiti njihovu poznatu leptir. Također možete nabaviti svježe smrznute pizze za pečenje kod kuće.

Giordano ’s, s restoranima po cijelom gradu, dodaje svoj zaokret klasičnoj pizzi u čikaškom stilu udvostručavajući koru i puneći je sirom. Svaka kriška curi u trenutku kad je razdvojite.

I u originalu Gino ’s istočno od Chicaga, blizu Veličanstvena milja, pronaći ćete pite s dubokim jelima sa zlatnom, ljuskavom korom i gomilama sira i ljutog umaka od rajčice - i unutrašnjosti koja je gotovo toliko voljena kao i sama pizza. Ne zaboravite da ostavite svoj trag na zidovima iscrtanim grafitima pokrovitelja. Naći ćete još Gino's East pizzerija smještenih u River North i South Loop.

Hot dog u čikaškom stilu

Klasični hot dog u čikaškom stilu počeo je kao jeftin zalogaj tokom Velike depresije. Iako možda više neće koštati ni dinara, možete probati (još uvijek jeftinu) uličnu hranu po cijelom Čikagu.

Dakle, šta je zapravo hot dog u čikaškom stilu? Evo kako to učiniti ispravno-goveđi hrenovka na lepinji od maka, prelivena žutim senfom, puno ukusa, luk narezan na kockice, kriške rajčice, koplje za krastavce, sportska paprika, malo soli celera-i što je najvažnije , bez kečapa.

Još jedan znak klasičnog čikaškog psa-taj goveđi hot-dog došao je iz Bečke govedine. Osnovana 1893. godine, kompanija je prvi put predstavila svoje ćufte na Svjetskoj izložbi u Chicagu. Bio je to hit hit. Danas možete isprobati njihov originalni porodični recept u njihovoj Factory Store & amp Cafe.

Pogodite sve pouzdane upute razbacane po četvrtima Chicaga, na primjer Portillo ’s u petlji i južnoj petlji, Wiener Circle u Lincoln Park, Jim's Original u Maloj Italiji i Redhot Ranch, sa lokacijama u Bucktown i Lakeview.

Možete probati i jedno (po mogućnosti sa hladnim pivom) u a Chicago White Sox igra na Garanteed Rate Field -u ili navijanje na Chicago Cubs na Wrigley Fieldu.

Italijansko goveđe meso

Možete ga skuhati vrućim (s paprikom giardinierom) ili slatkim (sa slatkim paprikama) suhim (bez umaka), mokrim (dodatni umak na vrhu) ili umočenim (cijeli sendvič se kupa). Bez obzira kako ga naručite, okusit ćete jednu od najpoznatijih kreacija Čikaga - talijanski sendvič s govedinom. Ukusan (i neuredan) sendvič sastoji se od hrskavog talijanskog valjka natrpanog tanko narezanim i začinjenim pečenim goveđem mesom, plus vaš izbor paprika i au jus umaka (ili umaka, kako ga neka mjesta zovu).

Original Rainbow Cone

The Original Rainbow Cone ukus je jednako dobar koliko i izgleda. The classic Chicago treat is a cake cone piled high with chocolate, strawberry, Palmer House (vanilla with cherries and walnuts), pistachio, and orange sherbet (in that order). It’s a local summertime staple and Instagram-worthy dessert that’s remained virtually unchanged since it was first scooped in 1926. Visit the original location in Chicago’s Beverly neighborhood or the Original Rainbow Cone’s second location at Navy Pier.


5 classic Chicago foods

If you’re craving a classic Chicago experience, then trying the city’s most iconic foods is a must. Sure, we’ve got an acclaimed fine dining scene and more Michelin-starred spots than you could fit into just one trip — but we still love our deep dish pizza, mile-high ice cream cones, and Chicago style hot dogs (preferably enjoyed in a ballpark).

Deep dish pizza

Giordano’s Pizza

Forget too-thin crusts and skimpy toppings. This beloved comfort food is as hearty as they come, with a thick crust baked in a deep pan that’s traditionally filled to the brim with cheese and topped with a layer of chunky tomato sauce. The result is a piping hot, gooey mountain of pizza goodness that’s a true Chicago classic.

Want to taste it for yourself? You’ve got plenty of options. There’s long-time favorite Uno Pizzeria and sister establishment Pizzeria Due u River North. Some say this is the birthplace of the deep dish pizza, invented in 1943 by the pizzeria’s founder. Today, they use their signature spice blend to craft a flavorful sauce that tops all their ultra-deep dish pies.

With locations throughout Chicago, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria is another great stop. Pizzas are made with hand-selected ingredients like fresh mozzarella cheese sourced from the same small dairy they’ve used for more than 40 years. Insider tip: Don’t skip their famous buttercrust. You can also get fresh-made frozen pizzas to bake at home.

Giordano’s, with restaurants all over the city, adds its own twist to the classic Chicago-style pizza by doubling up on the crust and stuffing it with cheese. Every slice oozes the moment you pull it apart.

And at the original Gino’s East of Chicago, close to The Magnificent Mile, you’ll find deep dish pies with a golden, flaky crust and mounds of cheese and tangy tomato sauce — and an interior that’s almost as beloved as the pizza itself. Don’t forget to leave your mark on the walls scrawled with patrons’ graffiti. You’ll find more Gino’s East pizzerias located in River North i South Loop.

Chicago style hot dogs

The classic Chicago style hot dog got its start as a cheap bite during the Great Depression. While they may not cost a nickel anymore, you can try the (still cheap) street food staple for yourself all over Chicago.

So, what exactly is a Chicago style hot dog? Here’s how to do it right — an all-beef hot dog on a poppy seed bun, topped with yellow mustard, lots of relish, diced onions, tomato wedges, a pickle spear, sport peppers, a dash of celery salt — and most importantly, no ketchup.

Another hallmark of a classic Chicago dog — that all-beef hot dog came from Vienna Beef. Founded in 1893, the company first debuted their frankfurters at the Chicago World’s Fair. It was an instant hit. Today, you can try their original family recipe at their Factory Store & Cafe.

Hit all the reliable go-tos scattered throughout Chicago’s neighborhoods, like Portillo’s in the Loop and South Loop, The Wiener Circle u Lincoln Park, Jim’s Original in Little Italy, and Redhot Ranch, with locations in Bucktown and Lakeview.

You can also try one (preferably with a cold beer) at a Chicago White Sox game at Guaranteed Rate Field or cheering on the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Italian beef

You can get it hot (with giardiniera peppers) or sweet (with sweet peppers) dry (no gravy), wet (extra gravy on top), or dipped (the whole sandwich takes a bath). No matter how you order it, you’ll be getting a taste of one of Chicago’s most famous creations — the Italian beef sandwich. The delicious (and messy) sandwich consists of a crusty Italian roll piled high with thinly sliced and seasoned roast beef, plus your choice of peppers and au jus sauce (or gravy, as some places call it).

There’s a fierce debate among locals as to who has the city’s best Italian beef. Al’s Beef u Mala Italija claims to be the inventor of the sandwich, and has won countless awards since it opened in 1938. They’re also advocates for the “Italian Stance,” the only way to eat an Italian beef sandwich — elbows on counter, feet 18 inches from counter, and mouth wide open (the most important part). Besides their original location, they have four outposts throughout the city.

Another popular spot is Mr. Beef on Orleans u River North. It’s a small eatery with a dive vibe, but it’s definitely big on flavor. Whether you eat standing at the counter or sitting at the communal table, you’re in good company: Even Jay Leno has sung the praises of this place. Just remember to bring cash (there’s an ATM if you forget), be quick with your order (service is speedy), and bring a very big appetite.

Garrett Popcorn

The Garrett Mix at the famous Garrett Popcorn Shop is a salty-sweet taste of local history. The secret family recipe includes a blend of Garrett’s classic CaramelCrisp and CheeseCorn popcorn flavors, so you get a bit of sweet and savory all in one bite. The mix has been a local favorite since the shop first opened in 1949. You’ll find multiple Garrett’s locations throughout Chicago, each offering tons of different popcorn flavors in their signature blue-striped tins.

Original Rainbow Cone

The Original Rainbow Cone tastes just as good as it looks. The classic Chicago treat is a cake cone piled high with chocolate, strawberry, Palmer House (vanilla with cherries and walnuts), pistachio, and orange sherbet (in that order). It’s a local summertime staple and Instagram-worthy dessert that’s remained virtually unchanged since it was first scooped in 1926.

You can also get fresh-made frozen pizzas to bake at home.

Giordano’s, with restaurants all over the city, adds its own twist to the classic Chicago-style pizza by doubling up on the crust and stuffing it with cheese. Every slice oozes the moment you pull it apart.

And at the original Gino’s East of Chicago, close to The Magnificent Mile, you’ll find deep dish pies with a golden, flaky crust and mounds of cheese and tangy tomato sauce — and an interior that’s almost as beloved as the pizza itself. Don’t forget to leave your mark on the walls scrawled with patrons’ graffiti. You’ll find more Gino’s East pizzerias located in River North i South Loop.

Chicago style hot dogs

The classic Chicago style hot dog got its start as a cheap bite during the Great Depression. While they may not cost a nickel anymore, you can try the (still cheap) street food staple for yourself all over Chicago.

So, what exactly is a Chicago style hot dog? Here’s how to do it right — an all-beef hot dog on a poppy seed bun, topped with yellow mustard, lots of relish, diced onions, tomato wedges, a pickle spear, sport peppers, a dash of celery salt — and most importantly, no ketchup.

Another hallmark of a classic Chicago dog — that all-beef hot dog came from Vienna Beef. Founded in 1893, the company first debuted their frankfurters at the Chicago World’s Fair. It was an instant hit. Today, you can try their original family recipe at their Factory Store & Cafe.

Hit all the reliable go-tos scattered throughout Chicago’s neighborhoods, like Portillo’s in the Loop and South Loop, The Wiener Circle u Lincoln Park, Jim’s Original in Little Italy, and Redhot Ranch, with locations in Bucktown and Lakeview.

You can also try one (preferably with a cold beer) at a Chicago White Sox game at Guaranteed Rate Field or cheering on the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Italian beef

You can get it hot (with giardiniera peppers) or sweet (with sweet peppers) dry (no gravy), wet (extra gravy on top), or dipped (the whole sandwich takes a bath). No matter how you order it, you’ll be getting a taste of one of Chicago’s most famous creations — the Italian beef sandwich. The delicious (and messy) sandwich consists of a crusty Italian roll piled high with thinly sliced and seasoned roast beef, plus your choice of peppers and au jus sauce (or gravy, as some places call it).

There’s a fierce debate among locals as to who has the city’s best Italian beef. Al’s Beef u Mala Italija claims to be the inventor of the sandwich, and has won countless awards since it opened in 1938. They’re also advocates for the “Italian Stance,” the only way to eat an Italian beef sandwich — elbows on counter, feet 18 inches from counter, and mouth wide open (the most important part). Besides their original location, they have four outposts throughout the city.

Another popular spot is Mr. Beef on Orleans u River North. It’s a small eatery with a dive vibe, but it’s definitely big on flavor. Whether you eat standing at the counter or sitting at the communal table, you’re in good company: Even Jay Leno has sung the praises of this place. Just remember to bring cash (there’s an ATM if you forget), be quick with your order (service is speedy), and bring a very big appetite.

Garrett Popcorn

The Garrett Mix at the famous Garrett Popcorn Shop is a salty-sweet taste of local history. The secret family recipe includes a blend of Garrett’s classic CaramelCrisp and CheeseCorn popcorn flavors, so you get a bit of sweet and savory all in one bite. The mix has been a local favorite since the shop first opened in 1949. You’ll find multiple Garrett’s locations throughout Chicago, each offering tons of different popcorn flavors in their signature blue-striped tins.

Original Rainbow Cone

The Original Rainbow Cone tastes just as good as it looks. The classic Chicago treat is a cake cone piled high with chocolate, strawberry, Palmer House (vanilla with cherries and walnuts), pistachio, and orange sherbet (in that order). It’s a local summertime staple and Instagram-worthy dessert that’s remained virtually unchanged since it was first scooped in 1926. Visit the original location in Chicago’s Beverly neighborhood or the Original Rainbow Cone’s second location at Navy Pier.
