One of the best parts of living in Chicago is the amazing array of delectable food options. Here in the Windy City, we’re home to two three-star Michelin rated restaurants, an accomplishment to be proud of. Yet, there’s plenty more great eats in the city, and Chicago Magazine has featured many of them in their annual May 2011 Best New Restaurants edition, which has already hit newspaper stands.
Chief Martial Noguier’s French-food delight Bistronomic on the Near North side has been named the best new restaurant of 2011. It’s only been open for a couple months, but it’s packed every night; many customers come from the restaurants that Martial used to work at, One Sixtyblue and Café des Architectes.
The Near North Side’s Bistronomic isn’t the only restaurant honored. Jonathan Beatty of University Village‘s Davanti Enoteca was also named the best new chef of the year. Bistro One West, located in the suburb of St. Charles, has the best new dish of swordfish.
Clearly, amazing new eats are available everywhere from downtown Chicago to suburbs miles away. No matter what Chicago neighborhood, you choose to live in, there’s something for you right outside your door.
