The Hot List: 10 places everyone’s talking about and dining at in April in order of heat

LONGMAN & EAGLE Reservations are so yesterday—none of the finer gastropubs take them. 2657 N. Kedzie Ave.; 773-276-7110

LEO’S CONEY ISLAND Who knew this Greek-American diner was such a big deal? More than 800 people on opening day, apparently. 3455 N. Southport Ave.; 773-281-5367

THE PURPLE PIG Call it a sausage party, call it Publican Jr.—just call it the Mag Mile’s hottest restaurant in ages. 500 N. Michigan Ave.; 312-464-1744

PRAIRIE FIRE Seven days in and the place was packed with South Loop regulars. That’s an inferno. 215 N. Clinton St.; 312-382-8300

BALSAN With honky-tonks, pubs, and taquerías on the rise, thank goodness there’s still a place for Jimmy Choo junkies to hang. Elysian Hotel, 11 E. Walton St.; 312-646-1400

XOCO Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, Bayless added homemade ice cream. 449 N. Clark St.; 312-334-3688

INOVASI This inspired spot lives up to its name, but judging by the crowds, it could just as easily be named Invasi. 28 E. Center Ave., Lake Bluff; 847-295-1000

BIG STAR The Mexican grub here is on such a roll, what’s next? Tacos al Pastor: The Movie. 1531 N. Damen Ave.; 773-235-4039

MACKU SUSHI Remember Kaze Sushi? The Chan family didn’t fool anyone with a new name and new address. 2239 N. Clybourn Ave.; 773-880-8012

EPIC Eye-popping hotties fill the eye-popping space. As for the menu prices: also eye-popping. 112 W. Hubbard St.; 312-222-4940
