Chicago has long been the land of late trends trickling in after proven success from either coast. But no more. . . at least when it comes to the food scene. Chefs in Chicago are on the leading edge these days. Go. Eat. Enjoy to your hearts content — you won’t be disappointed. Just be sure not to miss Girl & The Goat — probably one of the best meals I have eaten in a very very long time.

Oh, and find room for the desserts. They may look messy but they are Yummy with a capital Yeah!
