Taste of Chicago: Local Cuisine If you have to eat while you’re here, you’re in luck. Food doesn’t get much better than the Mexican cuisine at Frontera Grill, the ribs at Twin Anchors, the burgers at Mike Ditka’s Restaurant, the sushi at Mirai Sushi, or the Italian at Tuscany on Taylor in Little Italy.
