Sweet Home Chicago!

Whether you like pizza and pinot or steak and sushi, you’ll find it in Chicago

With the 2013 AAOS Annual Meeting being held in the Academy’s hometown of Chicago, AAOS Now turned to some local fellows to get their recommendations on the best the city has to offer—from restaurants to relaxing hot spots.
