Wow, the food was so good!

I just completed the new Uptown food tour! Wow, the food was so good! Phyllis is warm and a wealth of knowledge! I learned about the neighborhood and ate really high-level bites. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Chicago seeking out a neighborhood filled with history and diverse foods.
