10 most Instagrammable foods and drinks of summer in Chicago

Written by

Chicago has had an influx of great food this year.

So much so that we were able to confidently find 14 great restaurants that opened so far alone. And there's a whole lot more on the way. With new openings like the patio-dining-only Expat on Green and secondary locations like Small Cheval, 2015 is shaping up to be a spectacular year for Chicago dining. 

We saw some of the dishes belonging to these new Chicago restaurants roll through our Instagram feeds, and we couldn't help but notice and share. Catch these summery sensations while the sunshine and 70-degree weather hold strong.
