The Hottest Restaurants in Chicago Right Now, March 2020

Chicago Gaming Cafe has a Disney feel. | Barry Brecheisen/Eater Chicago

More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends, and family of Eater have one question: Where should one eat right now? While the Eater 38 is a crucial resource covering old standbys and neighborhood essentials across the city, it is not a chronicle of the “it” places of the moment. Thus, the staff offers the Eater Heatmap, which will change on a regular basis to always highlight where the crowds are flocking to at the moment.

March’s arrival brought a bounty of new openings to Chicago: the makers of party game Cards Against Humanity debuted their first cafe, while restaurant owners continued to try to make Lincoln Park cool with another big opening. Meanwhile, one of Chicago’s biggest restaurant names continued his comeback. Finally, a pizza champion opened his first solo restaurant. Wave goodbye to Lao Peng You, Phodega, Kostali, and Time Out Market Chicago. All take a bow after lengthy runs. Happy dining.
