gtrot’s Guide to Chicago

Friday, September 16th, 2011

Are you headed to Chicago soon? Do you live in Chicago? If so, you’re in for a treat! A while back we shared a post with Tripping covering our favorite eats, shops and sights in the Windy City. Check out the places where you might catch the gtrot crew hanging out!


Chicago Q – This is one of our gtrotter’s favorite restaurants in Chicago. It’s located in the heart of downtown and serves up tasty gourmet barbecue.

DMK Burger Bar- Looking for a burger? This is you place! They have great burgers and specialty fries! We recommend the Truffle Parmesan!

Purple Pig- Known for it’s ‘Wine, Swine and Cheese’ this tapas bar has a great outdoor patio and a long wine list. Great tapas that change with the season are great for sharing!

Yolk- Breakfast anyone? Red velvet French toast or Nutella crepes? Have your choice at this local favorite.

Terzo Piano- This Italian restaurant has a great view of the city (Millennium Park) and amazing cuisine, which is all local and organic.


Akira- The boutique chain is affordable, trendy and there are numerous locations throughout the city.

Block 37- Located in the downtown area, this new shopping center is on State Street with stores like Zara, Puma, Sephora and more!

Michigan Avenue – Welcome to the Magnificent Mile. If you don’t mind shopping with a lot of people and love the rush, this is your spot. So many flagship stores and restaurants for you to visit.


Barleycorn – Located in Wrigleyville, walk past the Wrigley stadium straight into a lower level restaurant and bar and upper level dance party. Fridays are pretty cray cray!

Big Star- Whew, the margaritas are very strong!

Kingston Mines- At this famous blues bar you can enjoy live music every night.
