As you probably know by now, all Chicago’s restaurants and bars are temporarily closed for dine-in service due to the coronavirus. Things are changing quickly, but we do know that new restaurants are getting into takeout and/or delivery, and others are offering new specials. Even though we can’t go to restaurants and eat there, we can support them (and eat something great) by ordering their food. We’ll keep updating this guide with more information as we get it, so stay tuned, and stay well. Got a restaurant tip? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
