In the new edition of the Guide, Acadia moves up from one to two stars, joining 42 Grams (Lincoln Park and Old Town) and Sixteen (River North).

We are thrilled to see his cooking reach these new heights.” Chicago’s three star restaurants, Grace in the West Loop and Alinea in Lincoln Park, both retained their coveted ranking in the new Guide.
