We will be in Chicago from a Thursday to Sunday, later in April. We are looking forward to your great city with its world class museums, chow and people. We will be staying at the Hilton on 720 S. Michigan. Looking for lunch near (or at) the Art Institute (probably spend 2 days there). Would like a great, dry aged steak. Would like a dinner at a "new American regional cooking" style restaurant (Chicago's "Chez Panisse" if you will). Would like some good local fare; pizza, Italian, hot dog/sausage sandwiches/heart stopping fries- you know the drill for that one. BTW, my wife won't do the tasting menu thing, so Trotters and Alinea (?sp) are out. Good wine/beer options are a plus for me. Thanks.
