Great Indiana eateries: 2012



Our blog is called Chicago Foodie Sisters, but we actually both reside in the suburbs. At the time we started the blog, one of the sisters was working in the city and visiting new downtown restaurants each week. But the blog has evolved over time to include recipes, photos, food product reviews and restaurants in the city and suburbs. It's also extended far into Indiana because one of us lives on the Illinois/Indiana border. Northwest Indiana is loaded with good eats and we covered many of them in 2012. Take a look through our blog posts for Indiana restaurants and be sure to give one a try. There's great food all over the region. This year, among the posts of eateries in the Hoosier state were.

One on my very favorite sandwich place, Lincoln's O in Highland, IN.
