Get Ready for a Sizzling September!

My monthly obsession returns: Chicago magazine's Hot List, letting us know the 10 restaurants getting the most buzz around town in September.
No surprise at all to find Girl & The Goat ("This is the slam-dunk success of the summer"), Gilt Bar ("Darker than a Lynch film, louder than a chain saw. . .") and The Portage ("Jeff Brantley's playful menu is irresistible") on the list, but there were quite a few surprises.

Noble Square newcomer Ruxbin Kitchen gets props because it's "a little quirky, a little shoestring, a lot indie." Unfortunately, the casual American bistro is closed through Sept. 5 to get ready for its first-ever autumn menu.
And Black Dog Gelato—which gets crazy lines out the door due to these last blazing days of summer—is simply a hit because it "sometimes closes early because it runs out of gelato."
