I would like to take my parents out for my dad's 74th bday-Alinea is out because it is all booked up, so looks like we are choosing between Charlie Trotters and Everest. I don't live in Chicago anymore, and feel out of touch with the local restaurant scene, so any and all opinions are most welcome. We are looking for highend, "special" feeling meal, in terms of both food and service. My parents are pretty sophisticated, well traveled, somewhat conservative eaters, if that helps.
