Near North Food Tour: Chicago, Ill.

Sure, Chicago is known for its deep-dish style pizza, but steer clear of conventional eats in the Windy City and get to know the eateries privy to locals on the Near North Food Tour instead. Focused on breaking away from oft-frequented downtown restaurants, the tour explores the Gold Coast, Old Town, and Lincoln Park neighborhoods. Taste authentic Polish and European pastries at Delightful Pastries, sample delicatessen delicacies at the Ashkenaz Deli, and stop at Chicago’s oldest chocolate confectioner and fudge shop, The Fudge Pot. In addition to the tastings, walking through these notable neighborhoods will teach you a thing or two about Chicago’s rich foodie town history.
