42 grams Named One of the Best Restaurants in the World
Congratulations to Jake Bickelhaupt and Alexa Welsh, whose Uptown restaurant, 42 grams, was named by La Liste as one of the best restaurants in the world. La Liste included seven Chicago area restaurants, ranking 42 grams ahead of heavy hitters Everest, Tru, and Blackbird. This comes on the heels of many other honors accorded the restaurant, including Jake being named a "best new chef" by Food & Wine.
According to its website, 42 grams is fully reserved through the end of the year, so save your pennies (lots of them) if you plan to dine there in 2016.
Congratulations to an Uptown couple who followed their dream and took a chance on a former Chester's Chicken storefront underneath the train tracks.
