10 of the Best Places in Chicago for Takeout

When it comes to foodie cities in the US,
Chicago
is often overlooked in favour of
New York
and
Los Angeles
. In recent years however, the Windy City has been
getting some of the gastronomic recognition it deserves. While it’s
brimming with casual eateries and trendy diners, sometimes there’s
nothing better than getting takeout and enjoying it in your PJs.
These are the best places where you can do just that.
