Chicago Top 25 Restaurants: June 2015

RPM Steak reclaims its throne this month, stealing the No. 1 spot back from Avec, which falls to No. 4. Stephanie Izard’s Little Goat Diner makes an impressive leap to No. 3, a spot it last saw in January. But even more noteworthy is Nellcôte, which lands at No. 2, up from No. 12. 

The biggest dropper this month is BellyQ, which has been pretty inconsistent within the rankings, rising and dipping with each month. But at least it’s held on within the Top 25. Six new restaurants — both new to the Top 25 and those jumping back on the list for the first time this year — means a handful of fallen restaurants this month, including 42 Grams and The Radler. 

Joining us for the first time are Urbanbelly, The Aviary, and Old Town Social. And we welcome back Earth + Ocean, Takito Kitchen, and Paris Club Bistro & Bar.
