Best Dry Cleaner
Davis Imperial Cleaners
Picky clotheshorses such as Michelle Obama and Chicago History Museum costume curator Timothy Long swear by this 59-year-old establishment, which can handle anything from delicate suede to elaborate beading. (Even Vogue endorses it.) Each garment gets photographed and cataloged. For a 10 to 20 percent surcharge, Davis will pick up and deliver anywhere from Hyde Park to north suburban Lake Forest. Prices are steep—ranging from $4.95 for a man’s shirt to upward of $535 to clean and preserve a wedding dress—but worth it.
