I will be in Chicago on business next week. A client (from San Francisco!) has requested serious Asian of any sort, except sushi. Ideally I would like a place that will take reservations as we're dining on a Friday evening. Price is not important. Clean is, so the sort of greasy hole in the wall that I love is not an option. Looking for something more real than Le Colonial and less fusion/french than Le Lan. 15 minute taxi ride from downtown max. Extra points for beer and or wine.
Thai seems to be my best option at the moment...Siam Rice or Spoon on Western perhaps?
