I’m Full 38

In honor of my 38th post, I decided to copy an idea from Eater Chicago, a website I frequent, study and admire. For those of you who are not familiar with Eater, familiarize yourself. Eater inspires me on a daily basis. Shocking, right?

Every few months, Eater updates their list of their chosen 38 essential restaurants in Chicago. The list is in no particular order and the restaurants range from trendy hotspots to taco stands. I love the Eater 38 and have brainstormed my own 38 for months. And so, to my readers, I present: The I’m Full 38. Same concept. My opinions. Enjoy!
