The 50,000-square-foot space houses 18 kitchens, three bars and one drop-dead gorgeous rooftop terrace—all spread across three floors. Our mission is simple: Bring the pages of Time Out Chicago to life with the help of our favorite chefs, the ones who wow us again and again.

People who have lived in Chicago all of their lives will tell you all about how the West Loop used to be a run-down, derelict part of town. These days, Chicagoans new and old flock to the area to enjoy the bevy of West Loop restaurants that now populate the happening neighborhood.

We narrowed down the options and ranked our all-time favorite West Loop restaurants. Psst! While you're waiting for your reservation, check out the best bars in the West Loop for a drink.
