    I've been working on this map for the last week or so. It is new food establishments for 2019, based on license issuances for food establishments. Only for the city of Chicago - no suburbs (yet).

    This could be a formal sit down restaurant or hole in the wall with barely any seats to a pizza delivery place. I did include some food markets (a lot of bodega type of markets on the West and South Side), but I did not include places like The Dollar Store or gas stations. Also some places went under new management, but did not close - those weren't included and neither were places that have already closed (a handful of places).

    I'm sure it's not totally perfect, but I'm hoping it'll be of use to some people. It's hard to keep up with openings all over the city and there are definitely some interesting ones here that probably haven't been talked about. If you click on each marker, it'll tell you the name of the establishment, type of food, website (if any), etc.

    I'll be updating this most days as the new license information comes out every Tuesday through Saturday morning.

    Legend:
    * Blue = restaurant/standard food establishment
    * Green = Coffee shop/cafe
    * Purple = Dessert, Bakery
    * Red = Food Market
    * Black = Unknown

    Also, some of the dessert places could have more than just dessert as food. A great example of this are the La Michoacana ice cream places that seem to be popping up in a large handful of neighborhoods in town. It is mostly dessert but they also serve some Mexican type of food.
