Chicago Food Favorites, Part II (See Jane Eat)

Two summers ago, I gave recommendations of my favorite Chicago restaurants and thought I’d share some new places.  Just like last time, I included restaurants in various neighborhoods around the city.  Also, be sure to check out my instagram, too, as I often tag the restaurants where I eat.

Best steakhouse: Bavettes Bar + Beouf (a great place even for a non-beef eater!)
Best doughnuts: Stan’s Donuts (bonus: they have delicious coffee)
Best patio: Parsons Chicken + Fish (sorry, Big Star–I can’t deal with your four hour wait times anymore; Parson’s only has a TWO hour wait)
Best pizza: Spacca Napoli (I still love Piece but if I want true, Italian pizza, go to Spacca Napoli)
Best gelato: Black Dog (go for the unique flavors; I love the goat cheese cashew!)
Best cheap eats: L’Patron Tacos (tips: pick it up to go. the veggie burrito is the best I’ve had. and order the guacamole + chips)
Best group dinner: Cho Sun Ok (It’s the most delicious Korean BBQ I’ve had outside of LA and yes, the waitresses are brusque, but it’s all in good fun)
Best dessert: Bang Bang Pie Shop (The key lime pie is so good, I’d eat it for breakfast)
Best Chinese: Lao Sze Chaun (Must head to Chinatown for the best–and Lao Sze Chaun is delicious)
Best kale salad: Siena Tavern (I had to include something healthy on here, although, I’m not sure it’s considered healthy seeing as how delicious it is.  Their meatball is also amazing)

I’ve lived in this fair city for seven years now, so if you want any other lists (i.e. beauty, bars, shopping, baby friendly) let me know!
