While Chicago is not usually know for its barbecue scene, Chicago q is definitely a step in the right direction. Chicago q is headed by Chef Art Smith who has an impressive bio. Smith heads several popular restaurants in the United States and has cooked for many celebrities, most notably as Oprah Winfrey’s personal chef for ten years. Overall the menu is pretty traditional for a barbecue restaurant but the food is cooked to perfection. Besides deliciously cooked meat and appetizing sides, I had the best piece of cheesecake I have ever tasted, even though I am not a big fan of cheesecake.
Chicago q is located in the Gold Coast neighborhood of downtown Chicago, and the restaurant’s atmosphere fits in with the trendy area. The restaurant feels open and laid back, which makes the eating experience even more enjoyable.
