The list-making frenzy continues, as Chicago Magazine has once again picked out a few of their favorite food items from the city. We say a few because the list sort of meagerly touches on the edible, before skipping over to best Asian karaoke room, best emerging architect, and best jewelry repair shop. No big deal, as they’ve already picked their favorite pizzas a few months ago. Anyway, what do we learn? Well, apparently you need to order the fries without truffles at DMK Burger Bar and that Whole Foods makes a fine pretzel. The magazine is at newsstands now, and you can also check some of it out online. We also have a full list below.
