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

CUMIN Team Cumin hails from Nepal, which means Wicker Parkers have a sudden craving for momo. Just this once—dumplings. 1414 N. Milwaukee Ave.; 773-342-1414

M BURGER We know it looks like part of Tru, but think about it: counter service and burgers under $5. 161 E. Huron St.; 312-254-8500

FOUNTAINHEAD Beer snobs tired of waiting for a draft at Hopleaf . . . can now wait for a draft here, too. 1968-70 W. Montrose Ave.; 773-697-8204

GILT BAR Already on top, Gilt added a cellar lounge, a former Alinea chef (Jeff Pikus), and roughly a zillion new customers. 230 W. Kinzie St.; 312-464-9544

PRASINO This chichi green scene hit the jackpot in La Grange. Next stop: St. Charles. 93 S. La Grange Rd., La Grange; 708-469-7058

CHILAPAN No restaurant is full-proof, but a BYO Mexican spot from a former Adobo Grill chef is a pretty good bet. 2459 W. Armitage Ave.; 773-697-4597

LONGMAN & EAGLE An outdoor patio will alleviate the crush inside. It won’t alleviate Logan Square’s crush on L & E. 2657 N. Kedzie Ave.; 773-276-7110

BENNY’S CHOP HOUSE Timeless name, timeless menu. Apparently, its fans don’t mind that the rest of the operation will take some time. 444 N. Wabash Ave.; 312-626-2444

FRANKS ’N’ DAWGS Alexander Brunacci, a partner, wants to downplay that Frank “Sixteen” Brunacci is his brother. Who is he kidding? 1863 N. Clybourn Ave.; 312-281-5187

COOKIE BAR Chocolate chip cookies as a destination: The retro revolution is complete. 2475 N. Lincoln Ave.; 773-348-0300
