As the year comes to a close and I enjoy some time with my family this holiday season, I wanted to recap a little bit. On my Instagram account, I often post pictures and tidbits about the restaurants and bars I dine at. Because Honey and Birch is primarily a recipe blog, I don’t really talk about the delicious places I visit here in my hometown.
This week, for one day only, I am going to break my own rule and talk about Chicago restaurants. If you were to ask me for a recommendation on where to eat, these are the places I enjoyed the most. If you are looking for up-to-date recommendations, then follow me on Instagram. (hint, hint… Honey and Birch)
