Has anyone done an exhaustive inventory of the number of good restaurants to have opened in the last 15 years? I was just thinking about this the other day, in 2000 if you wanted a first class dinner your choices were V Mertz or the Cafe de Paris (which closed several years ago.) Now, Sweet Ahura Mazda, the city is full of incredible restaurants at a number of price points. There are some amazing food trucks, (I had an exquicious Cuban sandwich from the Island Seasons food truck on Monday.) Between Dundee and Benson there are about a dozen really good restaurants that have opened within the last 10 years. Downtown dining has never been better and when you throw in Midtown, it's amazing. heck, even the quality of chain restaurants has improved significantly. This is a great town to eat in. Now if we could just get a first rate roller coaster park and a Neiman Marcus (or at least a Nordstrom) and we'd be set.
