A post shared by Smyth (@smythchicago) on

Chicago arguably has one of the best culinary scenes in the country. The Windy City is the home of many chef and restaurateurs super stars. 

With that in mind, we often see the same renowned Chicago restaurants make our Top 25 Restaurants list. In this latest ranking, we see a lot of Top 25 veterans, but also new seven restaurants making their debut on this coveted list. 

At No. 1, we congratulate Smyth, a high-end restaurant in the West Loop, known for it's comfortable atmosphere and New American fare served in either a five, eight, or 12-course. Executive Chef John Shields and Executive Pastry Chef Karen Urie Shields are also the culinary mastermind's behind Smyth's sister restaurant right next door, The Loyalist, a restaurant that also often makes Foodable's Top 25 list. 

Another West Loop gem and New American restaurant, Bellemore makes its debut on the list at No. 2. The restaurant is from the team behind Boka, Girl & The Goat and Momotaro and has been deemed another success by the restaurant group ever since it's opening last November. 

Rounding out the top three, is the Foodable Top 25 veteran Monteverde, an Italian restaurant in the West Loop from the award-winning Chef Sarah Grueneberg.

As for the other six new restaurants on the list, Foodable welcomes the upscale European restaurant Marchesa at No. 11, the artsy New American restaurant S.K.Y. at No. 12, the Revival Food Hall that features outposts of many popular Chicago eateries at No.17, the Gastropub Giant at No. 22, and restaurant Proxi known for it's bold small plates at No. 24 and it's sibling restaurant Sepia at No. 25 that serves upscale American fare.
