10 Classic Chicago Restaurants That Never Go Out of Style

10 Classic Chicago Restaurants That Never Go Out of Style

Chef Tony Mantuano has set the standard for modern Italian cuisine in Chicago for more than 35 years at Spiaggia, and the romantic restaurant overlooking Michigan Avenue is a favorite date night spot for many Chicago couples, including the Obamas. Over the years, Mantuano has cultivated a culinary dynasty in the Spiaggia kitchen, from Missy Robbins and Sarah Grueneberg to Joe Flamm. He certainly has an eye for spotting talent, including current sommelier Rachael Lowe, who was a James Beard finalist for Outstanding Wine Program this year. In a city with as many Italian restaurants as steakhouses, Spiaggia continues to push the envelope with food, wine, and service, although staples like the wild boar ragu gnocchi will always be available.
