Many of Chicago's greatest or most unusual restaurants are "no longer taking reservations," but they're definitely not forgotten. From steakhouses to delis, these dining destinations attracted movie stars, fed the hungry, launched nationwide trends and created a smorgasbord of culinary choices. Stretching across almost two centuries of memorable service and adventurous menus, this book revisits the institutions entrusted with the city's special occasions. Noted author Greg Borzo dishes out course after course of fondly remembered fare, from Maxim's to Charlie Trotter's and Trader Vic's to the Blackhawk.
An award-willing writer, Greg Borzo’s books include Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains, Where to Bike Chicago, Chicago Cable Cars, RAGBRAI: America’s Favorite Bicycle Ride and The Chicago “L.” Borzo is an accomplished public speaker and conducts tours for the Chicago History Museum and other organizations. He lives in the South Loop to best enjoy Chicago’s art and architecture, culture, history, biking and restaurants.
