What’s in store for Chicago Bites in 2008? We hesitate to speculate on all of the particulars and have left plenty of room in our plans for the unexpected. That’s half the fun!

We can tell you that we will introduce a more comprehensive rating system in 2008 to give you an even better idea of the Chicago restaurant scene. Also, keep an eye out for thematic shows like Chicago’s best “cheap eats,” eating challenges, and neighborhood highlights.

Here’s a taste of some of the places on our evolving restaurant list, which we use as a guide for our culinary outings. As always, we’re open to suggestions! Drop us an e-mail if there’s a spot we must absolutely include.

    Sadly, Dodo closed it’s doors back in mid-October…

    Tammy says Dodo is looking for new space, so there’s still a chance for 2008!
