Cho Sun Ok is amazing! This Chicago dining room is BYOB (bring your own bottle), and what’s better than sitting around a grill and cooking Korean BBQ to warm up on a chilly day?

Cherry Circle Room is cozy with its dim mood lighting, wooden shelves and tall leather booths. There, you’ll surely enjoy the ambiance while dining on local, rustic American fare. And the special warm cocktails here are a must!

Chicago Chop House is the best! It gives you that sense of being at home while also enjoying a great meal with friends. #ChicagoInsiders Tip: Try their Irish Coffee – arguably the best in the city.
