Phil's Dining Picks

From the November 2014 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine

Chicago has more than 18,000 restaurants. These are my favorites.

Going to RSNA is always an experience. Seeing the latest and greatest products and services from some of the biggest companies in the industry
as well as from emerging companies is something I look forward to every year. I also look forward to visiting great Chicago restaurants.
