Here are 6 travel tips for places to explore while eating your way through the Windy City.

Latest: What's Your Favorite Type of Vacation? Relaxing or Exploring?

1. Pizza, Pizza, Pizza: No one thinks Chicago food without thinking deep dish pizza. For a quality experience, try Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria. This restaurant has been getting cheese from the same dairy for the last 40 years. Talk about commitment to quality. There are 39 locations. Other famous deep-dish places include Gino’s East and Giordanos.

2. Check out the cocktails at Billy Sunday: Named one of the Best New Bars for 2014 by Chicago Magazine, this Logan Square spot has been featured in several national magazines for its unique original flavor and drinks by chef Matthias Merges and mixologist Alex Bachman.

3. Don’t forget the steak: Chicago is the original cow-town, where cattle was shipped to serve eastern markets in the 1800s. A trip here wouldn’t be complete without the perfect steak. Travel tips include going for the old-style traditional steakhouse at someplace like Gene & Georgetti, a Chicago original that has been serving up steak since 1941.

4. Try the sushi: Visitors might not think of Chicago as a sushi hub, but Kai Zan Japanese restaurant is one place that challenges that notion. This amazing sushi place uses both traditional and modern techniques and specializes in Omakase. Interesting fact: The chefs at Kai Zan, Melvin and Carlo Vizconde, are identical twins. Momotaro Chicago is another Japanese dining experience not to miss.

5. Stop by the Publican: This European beer hall-style restaurant serves rustic dishes and international beer. The restaurant’s signature dish is the Farm Chicken. The menu features a variety of pork and fish specialties.

6. Italian flavor: For casual and inexpensive Italian food try the Cheese, Swine & Wine at the Purple Pig restaurant.
