Boy, my Atkins diet has not been going well. Yes sir, I've been hitting the carbs pretty hard this past year in search of Chicago's best noodles. And looking back on 12 months' worth of Knockout Noodles columns, I feel confident when I say this is an exciting time to be a noodle lover in this town.

For the past year, Roger has explored Chicago's dining scene the best way he knows how: one bowl of noodles at a time. But these are the ten pastas that stood out from the rest, and they make for a great introduction to Chicago's amazing Italian restaurant scene.
Perhaps now that Todd Stein has diverged from the hotel scene and is employed by a kindred spirit like Tony Priolo, Stein will have reason to stay put awhile. I hope so, because his noodle work at Piccolo Sogno Due is currently in top form, and I'd hate to see him go even a day without a venue.
