Dining with good company is always enjoyable but every now and then, a little “me time” is necessary. However, that doesn’t mean having to settle for delivery or being restrained to the contents of the fridge. Chicago restaurants are embracing solo diners more and more and making the experience a pleasurable one. Best of all, there’s no arguing over what to order nor is sharing required. So the next time that date ditches you at the last minute, don’t sweat it and check out one of these following spots for an accommodating meal. Listed in alphabetical order.
While the vibrant dishes are meant to be shared, there’s certainly no shame in single-handedly finishing a whole plate of cacio e pepe (because there’s no such thing as too many carbs). Don’t skip the burger either. It’s wholly un-Italian but guests won’t care when they bite into a blissful blend of beef, roasted tomatoes, arugula, bacon jam, and cheese curds.
