Five eateries in Chicago and one in a suburb landed on a list of the best restaurants for foodies in America.
Fat Rice in Logan Square, Goosefoot in Lincoln Square, mfk. in Lakeview, Parachute in Avondale, and TETE Charcuterie in the West Loop, all made the list compiled by OpenTable.
The online restaurant-reservation service compiled its list after combing through more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the U.S. The reviews were submitted by verified OpenTable diners between August 1, 2014, and July 31, 2015.
"This year's honorees are where the culinary magic happens, where the rules of fine dining are being rewritten," says Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. "Whether they're reviving forgotten cooking techniques, championing the latest sustainable ingredient, or creating unexpectedly delicious and unique flavor pairings, these restaurants are where you can truly wow the foodies in your life."
Two other restaurants located not so far away from the city also appear on the list. Inovasi in Lake Bluff, Illinois, and All Purpose in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were mentioned as well.
It’s also worth noting that Parachute was also named on Bon Appetit magazine’s "Hot 10" list of America's best new restaurants.
