New To Chew: 10 Seasonal Chi-Town Dishes To Try Now

We don't know about you, but there isn't any New Year's resolution in the world that can stop us from eating out at one of Chicago's incredible restaurants. And with these bone-chilling temps we've been experiencing lately, comfort food is king — no matter how much you love a good chopped salad. While you may have a go-to spot to satisfy your craving for mashed potatoes and gravy, we implore you to get out of autopilot mode and try something new — but equally delicious and full of worthwhile calories.
To whet your appetite, we picked ten mouth-watering dishes spotted on some of the latest and greatest seasonal menus. Chicago q gives vegetarians a reason to visit the popular Gold Coast meat house with its decadent barbecue manicotti. And while Old Town Social will always be known for its incredible housemade charcuterie, the recent addition of tacos (making its own fresh fillings, of course), excites us almost as much as a frosty marg made with fresh lime juice — even in the dead of winter. So, what are you waiting for? We have a feeling you'll warm up to these dishes real quick.
