Chicago in 10 Plates
My favorite spot in town; I even gave my two-year-old son the middle name Matthias because of chef Matthias Merges. He makes street-food-style dishes like these skewered chicken wings grilled over Japanese charcoal, with lime-and-bonito salt alongside; you dip as you go, so it's salty and funky and tangy and delicious. Seeing Matthias make all those flavors and nuances come together is amazing. yusho-chicago.com.
