Another relative of the original Gibson’s, Hugo’s is their attempt to create the finest seafood restaurant in Chicago. Open and busy since 1997, the Frog in the title isn’t just for fun. Diners can enjoy delicately sautéed frog’s legs in garlic butter as an appetizer, and according to reviews, they keep guests jumping for joy. Hugo’s isn’t one of those trendy restaurants in the conventional style, but it proves that some trends are here to stay: fine food with excellent service in a welcoming atmosphere.

Part of the popular Lettuce Entertain You group, Shaw’s is a combination of a "jazzy sophisticated seafood restaurant and carefree, lively oyster bar." It might be a surprise to learn that Shaw’s also offer a small selection of some of the best sushi in Chicago, amongst warm and pleasant surroundings. Shaw’s avoids passing fads by keeping up its ongoing trend of high-quality seafood and excellent service. The absolute best trendy restaurant in Chicago for seafood.

Serious diners looking for classic French cuisine head to Lincoln Park’s throwback to the 1950’s bistro scene: Mon Ami Gabi. Beautifully presented chairs and tables sit on a tiled floor surrounded by dark wood and what seems like endless bottles of wine. The small scale of the restaurant gives it a cozy, neighborhood feel, while the décor and cuisine are contrastingly upscale. Diners just adore the steak frites.

One of famous chef Michael Mina’s restaurants, Margeaux is part of the Waldorf Astoria hotel not too far from the Gold Coast. Mina has tried to encapsulate the ambiance of 1920's French dining, with the warmth and hospitality expected of a true Chicago eatery. Servers are professional and knowledgeable, with an excellent sommelier to advise diners on wine choices. Food ranges from the popular brunch choices of the salmon croissant to filet mignon on an evening. As trendy restaurants in Chicago go, Margeaux is one of the most sophisticated.

The owners looked to their grandmothers for the inspiration for this place, hence its name, and the menu is an ode to traditional Italian food in all its forms. The duck ragu, shrimp risotto, and gnocchi are particularly loved by diners, who also praise the extensive wine list. Plush red seating and dark wood make this a classic, yet not too formal, setting to enjoy some of the best Italian food in Chicago. For those not in the market for a full sit-down meal, Nonnina also features a sandwich bar serving subs and soup to take away.

Right on the edge of the North Pond Nature Sanctuary sits a contemporary American restaurant surrounded by so much greenery, one may as well be eating outside. Even the interior has motifs of birds and plants. Combining the delights of urban parkland with Chef Bruce Sherman’s modern cuisine, this small yet superior restaurant keeps diners returning over and over. Enjoy every season's foliage, from fall leaves to spring flowers, while imbibing in trendy drinks like the vodka hibiscus or dining on stuffed fluke. One of Chicago’s not-so-hidden treasures.

Curved silver booths and vibrant artwork on the walls greet diners at this River West Italian eatery. It’s the sibling restaurant of Gibson’s Bar & Steakhouse, a Chicago icon and celebrity favorite. The Italia venue moves away from the old-fashioned ambience of the original and immerses itself in the contemporary, resulting in a waterfront restaurant with a bright, modern appeal. Servers know the menu inside out, and diners recommend the meatballs and the perfectly mixed margaritas.

Joe’s on East Grand Avenue is classy from the moment diners enter the formal and elegant dining room. Dark wood and spotless tablecloths that match the walls both echo a time gone by, when food was about taking it leisurely and enjoying the experience. Stone crab is the "must-have" dish here, with Joe’s unique mustard sauce that perfectly contrasts with the melt-in-the-mouth claw meat. Don’t forget to book ahead as this place is always in demand.

Tapas is a food trend that’s here to stay, and this Lincoln Park restaurant has been getting the small plates vibe right for decades.

When the nickname for a hometown is The Windy City, it’s great to go somewhere that brings the summer vibes all year 'round.

River North is full of trendy restaurants and bars, so how does one stand out? By keeping the décor simple and the menu diverse, which is exactly how HUB 51 have achieved the status of one of Chicago’s hottest eateries. Perfect for cocktails at the bar while people-watching, or for indulging in a mix of tacos, sushi, and nachos, and ideal for groups with a few picky eaters. It’s busy, often loud, and diners love it that way. Come here before a night out on the town.
