Bonci

There are three locations worldwide of Bonci Pizzarium: the OG is in Rome, the other two are in Chicago. Chef Gabriele Bonci’s hard and fast rules about pizza are these: use what’s best and in season, switch up the menu often. As you’ll likely never eat the exact same pie twice, ChefsFeed experts agree that you need to try as many different specialty pies on offer as you can when visiting.  

Sun Wah BBQ

Many of our experts have confessed: they have sometimes planned their trips to Chicago around getting the Chinese Roasted Duck at Sun Wah BBQ. The recipient of the 2018 James Beard America's Classics award, Sun Wah BBQ has been a Chicagoan institution since 1987. Other worthy accompaniments to its Hong Kong-style Barbecue include noodle soups and congee.
