One thing every city is partially defined by is its food. If that were the only characteristic up for debate, Chicago would have to be near the top of the list when it comes to food in the United States. When you’re in between seminars at our Chicago CME conference this fall, stop in at a few of these spots and try some of the best food in Chicago.
Lou Malnati’s had to be on this list. Long considered one of the best spots to get a classic, Chicago-style deep dish pizza, Malnati’s has gained a cult following. Patrons will line up out the door for a chance to taste some of this rich and gooey deep dish pizza. So what makes it so special? Each and every pizza in Lou Malnati’s kitchen is handmade from scratch. Come with a smaller party and you won’t have to wait long to snag a table and dig in. Come with an appetite because the portions are generous!

Fat Johnnie’s Famous Red Hots is a must-visit spot if you love a good hotdog with some heat and character to it. Their Might Dog throws in tamales, cucumbers, cheese and chili sauce on top of some of those traditional Chicago dog flavors for a weird but delicious combination.
If you’re trying to network with your colleagues, take them somewhere cozy and upscale like Bavette’s Bar and Boeuf. The unique and welcoming atmosphere makes for a comfortable conversation spot and their menu is full of French-inspired items ranging from seafood to steaks and lamb. Come ready for a hearty meal!
