Voting is now underway for Time Out Chicago's annual Eat Out Awards, which looks at the best new restaurants of the past year. You should definitely take a look at the categories and weigh in with your thoughts. Of course, you'll have to wait for a few more weeks before you'll be able to see who will actually win these things, but if you're up for some sincere speculation from the local food media, including some of my picks for the best new restaurants of the year, then click on over to Time Out right now. Currently, five of the twenty categories for "Bloggers' Choice" are up, including picks for best local chain. If you remember my adventure with George Motz from back in November then you might be able to guess which place I went with.
