LTH Forum Announces 2015 Great Neighborhood Restaurants Awards

LTH forum.jpgLTH Forum, the Chicago food-focused Internet chat community comprised of more than 17,000 foodies, has announced its 2015 Great Neighborhood Restaurants & Resources (GNRs) Awards.

Notable Analogue, Sportsman's Club and Publican Quality Meats (Paul Kahan's third GNR since 2008) made the list next to lesser-known places like Taza Bakery in West Rogers Park and Jimmy Jam Sweet Potato Pies in Beverly.

The awards didn't stop at Chicago city limits. Geneva got a spot with Bien Trucha, and Wells Brothers in Racine became the first Wisconsin restaurant to win. See the full class, replete with food porn, on the LTH website.

Since 2004, LTH Forum has been giving both notable and lesser known places cred with the GNRs in their community-based nomination process. Each member may nominate one place per year, and nominees are then discussed until a consensus is reached. Membership is free and open to anyone.
