About Chicago Bites

Since February 2006, Chicago Bites has been an independent source for restaurant reviews, local food events, and behind-the-scenes discussions with area chefs and food producers. We provide an original voice and unbiased reporting about everything that crosses our lips.

Originally we started as a podcast to record dining adventures in the city, expand culinary horizons, meet new people, and play with cool technology. Now, we’re a go-to resource about Chicago’s restaurant scene.

Writers for Chicago Bites are never paid to review restaurants. However, we are occasionally invited as members of the media to attend food events, previews, and openings, or to try local products. If something wasn’t paid for by us, we’ll say so in the post. Please visit our disclosure statement for more details.
