There’s a new three star Michelin restaurant in Chicago. Smyth, in the West Loop, was awarded the third star at a ceremony in New York City. It joins Alinea as one of two local eateries boasting three stars. It earned its first star shortly after opening in 2016 and a second star in 2017. Michelin calls Smyth “an elite restaurant, delivering peak creativity, precision and teamwork.” Two other Chicago restaurants, Atelier and Indienne both earned a single Michelin star for the first time. 14 other Chicago restaurants maintain single stars. Three other restaurants keep two Michelin stars.
