Full description
Start your introduction to the West Loop’s renowned and extensive food scene by taking a short stroll down Randolph Street, known as Chicago's best foodie street. Pass by a unique mixture of James Beard Award-winning chefs, old school diners, Chicago-based breweries and eclectic dive bars. Marvel at the historic facades of what once was a meat-packing and warehouse district revolutionized into the delicious Restaurant Row of today. 

Visit Do-Rite Donuts, owned by chef Francisco Brennan, who uses his Michelin restaurant experience to create uniquely flavored, artisanal donuts. Head on to Bonci Pizza, and sample scissor-cut slices with distinctive toppings. Then stop in at Kuma's Corner, the ethos of which is to combine three of the owner's favorite things: burgers, beer and heavy metal music.

Continue to Nonna's/Formento's and experience a sense of warmth, family and unforgettable food that is reminiscent of Sunday family dinners. Lastly go to Cemitas Puebla, a family owned restaurant specializing in traditional Poblano foods, using recipes that can be traced back to Tony Anteliz’s family in Puebla, Mexico.
