In its recent issue profiling "America's Top 5 Restaurant Cities," Bon Appétit checked in on Chicago. The magazine's local choices won't come as much of a surprise -- Moto, Green Zebra, etc. -- but when things are working, I guess people can't help but recognize. (Which isn't to say everyone agrees: the Sun-Times notes that, while Esquire is less impressed with some of these spots, its critic loves Butter. No accounting for taste, huh?)
