Hey friends! It's been about 7 months since I've lived in Chicago but I get asked often on my favorite restaurants and things to do throughout the city so I decided to put them all in one place. It's also a great reminder for me when I come back home on where my favorite places are. Chicago will always have a special place in my heart and still has some of the best food and coffee shops in my opinion.
