Of course, cheap eats abound in Chicago, but that doesn't mean that they are all equal. In fact, most aren't even worth the small change dropped on them. But there are exceptions.

Eat More Fish
Shop at a New Market
Explore a Different Neighborhood
We love exploring new neighborhoods, but we also recognize the need for a good tour guide. That's why we've been interviewing some of the best chefs in the city to see where they like to eat in their own neighborhoods, including our look at Jeff Mauro's Elmwood Park. We've also taken a look at a few particularly restaurant-worthy destinations, including Chinatown.
