Moving to Chicago

geg5150 | Apr 18, 2008 05:39 PM

Hi y'all!

I just got the word that I'm being transferred to Chicago in July. I've been in the DC area for the past year and Phoenix for 11 years prior to that. I'm super jazzed to be moving to one of my fave cities.

Here are the neighborhoods that I'm considering (in no particular order):
Wicker Park
River North
Gold Coast
East Rogers Park

So, of the neighborhoods which would you recommend or give warning regarding local restaurants, bodegas, shopping, etc.

I love ethnic food and dive bars, neighborhood hangs outs are the best! I'm a "natural" food shopper, farmers' market shopper, too. I really love to cook and I'll be traveling less with my move to Chicago, so great food shopping is something I'm looking forward to.

What say you, Chicago?

Thanks in advance!
