EATER CHICAGO: 18 Great Please to Eat and Drink near Lollapalooza

If you’re one of the 200,000 people or so that are heading to Lollapalooza, Chicago’s largest annual music festival/mob scene in Grant Park this weekend, you’ll have plenty of standout food options at Chow Town inside the festival grounds. But before, during, and after the festival every day it can get dicey, especially when you’re among the hordes of people navigating the immediate Loop vicinity that are looking for somewhere to go upon leaving. Luckily, there are dozens of restaurants and bars within a block or two to duck into, fuel up and take a load off. Here are 18 great options for food and drink outside Grant Park.

REDEYE CHICAGO: Dim sum at Yum Cha in the Loop

The Chinese phrase dim sum translates to “touch the heart” in English. It’s an apt descriptor for a cuisine that, when executed correctly, feels like a comforting family dinner party. But Chicago is not San Francisco, where there are so many good dumplings you almost expect the corner gas station to serve a mean barbecue bao. Many places in Chinatown and beyond serve stuff that’s been moldering away inside a bamboo basket for hours waiting for your order, or they dole out reheated pre-frozen dumplings with glutinous skins so thick you feel like you’re chewing on a tire with each bite.

DAILY HERALD: Make a Chinese New Year resolution to try dim sum

Lions and lanterns, dragons and dumplings. Signs of the Chinese New Year abound this time of year. If you've had your fill of steamed whole fish and noodles longer than your legs, I suggest you make a resolution to try dim sum. And you don't have to head to Chicago's bustling Chinatown to get a taste of these breakfast and lunch items. A number of suburban restaurants now offer dim sum brunch on the weekend, which prompted me to get a better understanding of dim sum menus and dining practices.

This has been an incredibly delicious year, and we’ve spent it eating and drinking all over the city. We braved the crowds at new hot spots and revisited some of our favorite older spots.

And after all that, we ended up with this list of the 100 best dishes and drinks of the year.

CRAINS: Demystifying Dim Sum


Dim sum.

In the simplest terms, it's small, shareable Chinese plates.

The term translates to "touch the heart," and its roots come from roadside tea houses that would serve small snacks to customers. The Cantonese also refer to the dining experience as yum cha (drink tea)

CHICAGO MAGAZINE: Yum Cha | Dim Sum Kitchen

Chef Rodelio Aglibot, best known to Chicago diners from his work at the River North hotspot Sunda, opened Earth + Ocean in Mount Prospect last year, after a short tenure with BLT Restaurant Group and a fizzle with Argent, a short-lived occupant of the Dana Hotel.

But Aeron Lancero, chief operating officer and partner of the restaurant E+O in Mount Prospect, said he'll apply soon. Lancero had urged the village to allow corkage, something he and other owners of high-end restaurants say is a great way to attract wine lovers.

"We made the decision to create a city-style restaurant in the suburban market," Lancero said. "There are guests all over suburbia who have great wine collections, whether it's high value or significant value."
