Wicker Park's edgy Mado is the only Chicago restaurant to make Bon Appetit's list of best new restos of the year:
"Husband and wife Rob and Allie Levitt are fanatical about local and sustainable ingredients.
"A chalkboard in the dining room lists all the farms that the restaurant works with, and every two weeks Rob receives a 180-pound pig from Slagel Family Farm, butchers it himself, and uses every bit in dishes like ciccioli (pork cracklin's), charcuterie, and the restaurant's signature porchetta (spit-roasted pork loin and belly)."
Here's also a recipe for Mado's Clam and Calamari Seafood Stew with Salsa Verde.
