Chicago Top 25 Restaurants: October 2014

As always the Chicago dining scene created a major social buzz this October. And things got interesting with the no. 1 restaurant, RPM Steak being new to Foodable's Chicago Top 25 list. However, by the same restaurant group is the restaurant RPM Italian, a seasoned Top 25 veteran, which also makes this month's list at no. 5.

If you have been following this city's Top 25– you probably remember last month's list featured a ton of new restaurants (10 to be exact) making their debut on the list and eight of those newbies return this month. Some other familiar restaurants, such as Grace, Nellcôte, CH Distillery, Honey Butter Fried Chicken, and Alinea rejoin the list after a brief hiatus. 

Some major movements within the list include- Two Restaurant launches from no. 16 to no. 7 this month, Baffo also climbs up the list from no. 24 to no. 13, and Tanta dropped from no. 6 last month to barely holding on at no. 25 this October.
