Michelin Guide Meets Uptown. Who Knew?

From Crain's"Michelin's revered restaurant guide makes its Chicago debut next week. In advance of those star ratings, Michelin has separately identified 46 Chicago restaurants as outstanding values. The Bib Gourmand rating goes to restaurants the Michelin guide believes “offers good cuisine at a reasonable value.” Diners can get two courses and either a glass of wine or dessert for $40, tax and gratuity not included."

We were surprised and delighted to see Ceres' Table (4882 N Clark) and Hopleaf (5148 N Clark) representing Uptown.  (We wonder how many other Michelin Guide restaurants are right next to the most notorious towing company in town?)  Congrats to those restaurants and the others listed (many of which are in our immediately adjacent neighborhoods); see them all here.


  1. Thank God Michelin doesn't have a 'duck and cover' advisory.
    Otherwise Uptown would be an issue.

  2. There happens to be a tire store right there too. Hmm....

  3. Am I the only one who thinks these markings on the sidewalks are nothing more than graffiti? Zip Car has them all over the city too. Can't believe they get away with it.
