the essential 38

 Earlier this month, the  Eater published a list of the 
"38 essential Chicago restaurants".  
What's your number?? Mine is 20. 
For someone like me, who loves to eat out often and be the first on the restaurant scene, I was pretty shocked how few of the restaurants I have been to! A lot of the restaurants on the list are on my must-try list. I list below some notable restaurants that I'm pretty surprised didn't make the list. What do you think?
