Cooped up inside and sick of making decisions? Save your brain cells for Zoom trivia night and let some of the Windy City’s most revered tastemakers fix you the multi-course meal of your homebound dreams, cooked, portioned, and boxed for take-out or delivery. In today’s flipped-upside-down world, accessing Michelin-starred dining requires neither shirt, shoes, nor advanced reservation (unless you’re doing curbside pick-up, in which case I recommend wearing a shirt and shoes throughout the transaction).
