Chicago Reader Eaters Dish On Chicago's Best Eats

Well, if you're a Top Chef fan, you'll know that Chicago has been cleaning up that plate in recent years. We recently spoke with the series 2008 winner, Chicago's Stephanie Izard.Next week – on his birthday – we'll speak with the man who swept this year's Top Chef Masters, Rick Bayless.

We probably don't need reality show winners to know that Chicago is home to some inventive and delicious eateries, and the Chicago Reader is rounding up some of the most intriguing food trends this year. They already published their picks for the best new restaurants of 2009.

Mike Sula writes about food for the Chicago Reader, and he talks turkey – or at least pork, churros and Mediterranean cuisine.
