CHICAGO: Mexican, $$
There might not be any better remedy for a Chicago snow day known to man other than a bowl of delicious soup. And there are few soups that are quite better than what comes out of the kitchen at XOCO. Hot, steamy and full of umptuous flavor, full of meat and veggies. I had the shortrib on this particular visit, and topped with fresh peppery arugula, it was divine.
The line does get long, as they don’t take your order until they have a seat available, and they get busy.
But as far as Rick Bayless restaurants go, this might be my go-to spot.
