Hey guys. I've been lurking around the site for the past week or so trying to find a nice place for an anniversary dinner next Wednesday (Jan. 2). I've read lots of posts and looked at lots of menus. I first decided on north pond but it's closed til mid January! Then moved on to piccolo or piccolo due only to find no reservations available around 730! So now I need some advice for places that would be good. We live on Lincoln park and would be willing to go anywhere around here, the loop or out to bucktown area. We're not big on the multicourse meals (prod frie?) but rather order our own stuff. Any type of cuisine would be ok except for really French or really "creative" stuff. We went to girl and the goat a couple months ago and loved it. Small plates are fine and especially anything with cuisine similar to GAGT. Thanks!
