Add another feather in the cap of Chicago's culinary scene.
AAA's 2011 restaurant guide bestowed the highest Five Diamond rating on seven Chicago restaurants, the most of any state in the country. Nevada came in second with five.
Alinea, Arun’s, Avenues (Peninsula Hotel), Charlie Trotters, Everest, Seasons Restaurant (Four Seasons Hotel) and Tru were all repeats on the list, although no new Chicago restaurants were added this year.
The ratings are compiled during unannounced annual evaluations.
