I have been dying to try Alinea, so for my 30th birthday, my husband booked a reservation with Alinea. We snapped the first spot available, which isn't great a weekday 9:30. I suppose we won't finish our meal until 1am? We will be visiting Chicago from the South during the week in mid August.
After reading thru the Chicago board for a while, here is my itinerary
We are staying on Magnificent Mile
Wednesday: Lunch Blackbird
Thursday Lunch : Purple Pig
Dinner: hoping to get Schwa
Friday Lunch: ?? (we have to catch a 3 o'clock flight, so this place would have to take reservation).
1. Blackbird seems to be a bit out of the way. what's some touristy stuff we can do around the area?
2: If we can't get Schwa, I really don't know where to eat. I have read about some reviews of Tru, Everest, L2O, but there seem to be a few 'mixed reviews'. need suggestion...
Or should we try the the goat and the girl? or the publican? these two places seem to be getting lots of positive reviews too.
3. Friday lunch.... need suggestion.. thank you
