I'm heading to Chicago for the first time next week. One night I have to go for a Steakhouse (I'm going with Chophouse) and one night I have to find some great Italian. I had preliminarily picked Osteria via Stato, before I found this website. We're staying at The Drake, and it would be nice to stay within 1 mile, but I see alot of references to Bruna and Bacchanalia in my searches, and they sound like they're wortth the cab fare, but the reviews seem to be a couple of years old.
Any comments are welcomed
