Welcome to Chicago, our home base. The Globalphile Curator, Robert Glaze, has lived and worked here for 37 years and loved it from the very first moment. It is a city with great cultural institutions, amazing theater and performing arts, wonderful/cutting edge restaurants and the friendliest of people. The city is really a collection of diverse neighborhoods with many having their own ethnic flavor. So our best picks on what Chicago has to offer are featured on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis.
