Dining out is one of the best parts of any travel experience. While you’re at it, why not kill two birds with one stone and go to a place with some history? Here are some of my favorite historic restaurants in Chicago.
While one of the previous owners of Daley’s Restaurant had the name “Emmanuel,” Chicago’s oldest restaurant has nothing to do with Chicago mayors. It pre-dates them by far, going back to the World’s Columbian Exposition, which took place not far from here at 63rd and Cottage Grove. In addition to the diner-style cooking they have always offered, Daley Restaurant has soul food on the menu, too.
