Maggie Hennessy is Time Out Chicago's restaurant and bar critic and a freelance food, drink and travel writer. Her work has appeared in Bon Appetit, Conde Nast Traveler, the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, Food & Wine, Salon, VinePair and more. She's spent nearly her entire adult life covering Chicago's food scene, save for an 18-month sojourn to the high desert of southern New Mexico, where she feasted on Hatch green chiles with reckless abandon. She is composed of roughly 85 percent pasta, and likes cozy restaurants and real neighborhood bars. When she's not eating, cooking or talking about food out loud or on paper, she's probably biking or riding transit around our beautiful city, en route to explore its 77 glorious neighborhoods.
