I'm in town this weekend and we're looking for a Saturday night dinner spot. I've read lots of recommendations, but I'm looking for more of a locals' experience, rather than "Chicago's best restaurant."
Any suggestions for a funky neighborhood to explore before a good, reasonable meal?
We like a wide variety of foods, but we're from Toronto so there's no special appeal to ethnic specialties (we can get *everything* here). I'm thinking along the lines of Contemporary American, or a really great French bistro or Italian spot. While good food is obviously important, we'd also like a nice vibe/ambiance.
I'm pregnant, so the wine list doesn't matter! (Hubby not much of a drinker.)
Thanks in advance for your help!
