We are big SF foodies who have one night in Chicago. We wanted to do Alinea or Schwa but of course (devastatingly) we can't get a reservation on the Saturday night we are in town. One of us just went to Trotters last month so she wants something different. What is the next best restaurant if you can't go to those three? I realize that Chicago has an amazing array of totally different restaurants in all price ranges but we want something in the Alinea/Schwa/Trotters class of special.
I'm leaning toward Tru but would love to hear from the local experts.
