Thank you for visiting Chritiques, a compilation of my personal and unbiased reviews of restaurants, food products and events. My name is Christina, and I am an attorney, legal business development manager, and lover of all things food (and wine, and travel). When I am not navigating Chicago’s restaurant scene, I am running, usually along Chicago’s gorgeous lakefront path, playing golf, or attempting to decorate our new home. While Chritiques is mostly devoted to reviewing restaurants that are located in the Chicagoland area, I love to travel and will include restaurants from across the country, as well.

Each restaurant that I Chritique is based upon a recent dining experience and, unless otherwise noted, I personally pay for all of my meals. I also never disclose my affiliation with Chritiques before or during the meal. While I am often invited to review restaurants, events and products, each Chritique is always my professional, unbiased opinion.

Please feel free to reach out. And, most importantly, come back and visit again soon!
