My wife and I will be back in Chicago -- in fact, my hometown¹ -- this November, and am just beginning to plan our food agenda. I have some questions re: where to lunch/dine this time around.
Our last trip we ate at Blackbird, Mercat a la Planxa, Publican, Purple Pig, and Sable.
I know we will be going to Girl and the Goat this trip.
That said, I rarely (or never!) see reviews of restaurants like The Boarding Room or Sixteen . . . North Pond or The Lobby . . . Elizabeth or L2O . . .
Now please don't misunderstand: I see recommendations for places, but rarely do I see an actual review/comment by someone on their meal there. Are these recommendations from personal experience? or merely by reputation?
Any thoughts? comments?
