Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
