Required Reading: Chicago Reader’s Food Issue

Image via Chicago Reader
The notion that Chicagoan’s eat as some sort of means of survivals is as outdated as the flip phone. In Chicago, the land built on the backs of pigs in line for slaughter, food is embedded in the city’s culture. Chefs are celebrities, restaurants have cult followings and the quest for a perfect bagel turns into a lifelong journey. Chicago Reader looked at the way 50 Chicagoan's eat – not the food they put in their mouths, but the stories behind the cuisine. From joyrides with cabbies to their favorite lunch spots to an intimate meal with two Logan Square chefs at the restaurant they love – Reader provides stories in a droll-worthy issue on stands today. The issue also has picks for the best oysters, espresso, tacos, bagels and more in Chicago. Read the online version here.

  1. "Chicago Reader looked at the way 50 Chicagons’s eat – not the food they put in their mouths, but the stories behind the cuisine." Chicagons sounds like a cool kind of alien. Like Vogons. Plus, "droll-worthy?" Edit, please.
