Heading back to Chicago - Schwa and what else?

uhockey | | Sep 21, 2010 04:17 PM

Hello all,

Will be heading back to Chicago yet again with family for the SOFA Art exhibit in November - looks to be 3-4 breakfasts and lunches, 3 dinners. I know Schwa is high on my want list and I'll be working on reservations as soon as the window opens........the question is, where else? While I'd not hesitate to return to Trotter's, Alinea, L2o, or TRU I know I'll be back when Next opens and have plenty of time to re-visit places then.......for now I want something else.

Avenues seems promising for a dinner, but so does Bonsoiree.....and I really feel bad about not yet visiting Everest on my three prior trips. Any other contenders on the haute-French front that I'm overlooking? Does Les Nomades stack up? Might brave the lines at Great Lake one day as a pre-dinner.

Lunches - need to do Uno this time (already done Giardanno's and Lou's,) probably Purple Pig as well. What aboud CDA or Henri? Naha? Somewhere else?

Breakfasts - not sure yet. Probably Southport Grocery, Jam, perhaps the French Market or Hot Chocolate.

As always, open for opinions from all.
