Awesome food in Chicagoland

As I've recently moved to the Chicagoland area, I've naturally started to learn about trading futures. We all know traders love to eat, which is my other favorite hobby, so it follows that Chicago must have some awesome food. There are no holes in this logic, so don't even try. It seems a thread dedicated to awesome places to eat in Chicago does not exist on this forum. It's about time one was started.

So far, I have gathered the following places to try out from @wldman (thanks!):

Bennison's bakery

Marie's Pizza

Vito and Nick's pizza

Kuma's burgers

Not on the eating side per se, but Aviary is a must try just to see the clever drinks. You should order the IFL for the spectacle at least once.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

Amazing middle eastern food at great prices....! Pita Inn.....

The Story Of Pita Inn Truly Embodies That Of The American Dream. Falah Tabahi, An Immigrant From The Middle East Came To America Determined And Passionate About Introducing Authentic Mediterranean Cuisine To The Chicago Land Area. In 1982 That Dream Became A Reality As Falah And His Wife Opened Pita Inn Skokie. Falah Personally Created All The Recipes For ALL Of The Menu Selections From The Falafel, To The Hummus, And 'Yes' Even The 'Famous Hot Sauce'. In Order To Maintain A High Standard Of Quality And Consistency, Falah Personally Trained Every Chef In Each One Of The Restaurants To Carry On In His Footsteps.

Have to agree. There's a Lou Malnati's 2 blocks from us....it's phenomenal. Really, it's their crust....buttery, flaky, deep crust. It's truly a "pie." Love it!

Never tried the Pita-Inn but my wife has. She said it was pretty good. I'll have to give it a go.

Total very good pizza went there a lot as a kid in high school back in the '80's. There was one close to our house a few years ago we would get pizza from but they moved just down the road somewhere and we have not since. No real reason except other restaurants. Not quite the same as Lou's....IMHO
