GNR Pocket Guide to Save Helpless Diners

Chicagoist was super excited when we found out a couple of years ago that you can text message Google (GOOGL on the ol' cell) and it will give you the info you need. 2006_11_GNR.jpgAha, we thought to ourselves, never again will we aimlessly wander around looking for a restaurant. Now we can just Google it!

As it turns out, using the Google text function is not the best way to find great restaurants in Chicago. Using LTHforum is.

LTHforum, the local Chicago Chowhound-esque website, recently created the cleverest little guide we've seen in a while: a pocket-sized guide to GNRs(Great Neighborhood Restaurants). The GNRs are chosen by members of LTHforum, and run the spectrum of neighborhoods and cuisines. Do not pass go, do not collect $200; download this handy guide, and your taste buds will thank you.

For those who prefer to do things the digital way, Eat Chicago created a Google map digital version of the GNRs.
