• Chicago remains among top destinations for gastronomic travelers


    Foodies visiting Chicago, Illinois, may be pleased to learn that two of the city's restaurants were recently awarded two Michelin stars, according to The Associated Press.

    Chicago's L20 and Graham Elliot restaurants were awarded two Michelin stars, while chef Grant Achatz's Alinea held on to its three-star status, making it one of the most highly regarded restaurants in the Midwest.

    In addition to the prestigious two- and three-star eateries that gained notoriety in this year's 2013 Michelin Guide to Chicago Restaurants, which goes on sale Wednesday, 16 additional restaurants were awarded one Michelin star.

    Only three cities in America have Michelin guidebooks covering their restaurants - Chicago, New York, and the San Francisco Bay/Wine Country region. The announcement of the newly awarded stars in the Windy City further solidifies it as an ideal destination for travelers looking to sample the very best cuisine in the U.S.

    According to The Chicago Tribune, the restaurants awarded a single Michelin star include Acadia, Boka, Everest, Goosefoot, Mexique, Moto, Takashi and Topolobampo.

    "It was really exciting to find the consistency we’ve been looking for, because we’ve been following [chef Carlos Gaytan] very closely since the first Chicago edition," Michelin's anonymous guidebook editor told the news source, speaking of Mexique's addition to the list for the first time.
