Avec tops Zagat list of top 50 Chicago restaurants

Zagat.com released its list of Chicago’s Top 50 restaurants on Tuesday.Topping the list is the tony Avec in the West Loop. The website describes it thusly:

“You’ll want to ‘try everything’ at Paul Kahan’s ‘always-packed’ West Loop Mediterranean, a ‘foodie-worthy’ ‘best in Chicago’ thanks to ‘absolutely delicious,’ ‘inventive’ small plates including ‘life-changing’ stuffed dates; the ‘minimalist’ digs have communal seats (‘prepare to sit with strangers’), and no reservations often mean ‘long waits,’ but it remains a ‘standard go-to’ when you want to ‘impress.’”

In second place, is Grant Achatz’ eclectic, world-class Alinea, followed by Rick Bayless’ iconic Frontera Grill in River North.
