There was no shortage of photogenic food and drink options being offered in Chicago in 2016 (most of them were among the 100 best dishes and drinks in Chicago). We scoured our archives from the past year and put together some of our photo favorite photos taken at Chicago restaurants and cocktail bars. Believe us: all of these items taste just as good as they look.
