Every week the New York Times travel section gives readers easy tips on how to navigate a city in 36 hours. This Sunday, Chicago gets the 36 Hours In treatment and, not surprising, it’s pretty food heavy. Fortunately there’s no cliche talk of deep-dish pizza and Chicago hot dog’s, rather they hit upon more of our new hot foodie destinations, including Girl & The Goat, Gilt Bar, Xoco, Longman & Eagle and Terzo Piano, which is almost a footnote as part of the Art Institute blurb.
A pleasant surprise in the article is the inclusion of Big Chicks, the often-packed, always-lively Uptown gay bar tucked among grungy convenience shops and hair-weaveries on Sheridan Road. With all the great spots in town, we couldn’t imagine having to narrow the list, but the article does a great job of highlighting unique spots in various parts of the city.
