My Chicago: What in Chicago lives up to the hype?

The Question: What is something in Chicago that lives up to the hype?

“Nellcote in the West Loop. Great people-watching, great food, great service. To add to the mix, they always have a live DJ on the weekends.”

Lindsey Gift | Lincoln Park


“Soldier Field. Chicago people love their sports. During summer, it’s arguing about Cubs or Sox all the time. But during the fall, we have one team.”

Wes Larkin | South Loop


“Antique Taco. We tried a few appetizers and about five entrées, and all of them were at least an eight or nine out of 10. The steak tacos and chorizo chili cheese curds are so good.”

Damien Silver | Lincoln Park


“Wrigley Field. You always hear how amazing it is, but once you get into the bleachers, everyone is having a good time and has their shirts off. Well, I wish I was a guy, but at least we can still enjoy a cold beer.”

Mary Mullen | Wrigleyville


“I’d say the top of the Sears Tower. You can see everything from up there and feel so free.”

Patricia Silver | Wrigleyville


“RPM, the new restaurant in River North. Everyone has been talking about it because those two people from TV (Bill and Giuliana Rancic) are behind it. The food is amazing, and it’s contemporary design is beautiful. We were wowed as soon as we walked in.”

Danielle Schwartzman | Lakeview


“Summers in the city. You can enjoy a great rooftop, an outdoor patio, and still be within walking distance of the lake. Not to mention the festivals, concerts and sports teams that always give you options for your weekends.”

James Fugate | South Loop


“The restaurant scene. I love being able to walk around and venture to all different types of restaurants and explore the different tastes of the world on Randolph in the West Loop. Enjoying a margarita at De Cero or a good gnocchi dish at Vivo will always make wandering out for dinner well worth it.”
