Mother's Day Weekend with a non-Foodie. Help!

Sharkbait | Mar 25, 2009 01:33 PM

My mum and I are going to be in Chicago 8 May- 10 May. I'm a foodie -- she's not. So, I'm having a hard time balancing our food selections. And, I've searched this board, and the options are just overwhelming...but again, finding a happy medium is difficult.

Hoping you can help!

We're looking for suggestions for:

-Friday night casual dinner ($10-15 pp)
-Saturday lunch ($10-15 pp)
-Saturday dinner (This can be $75+ - we're willing to go expensive here.)
-Sunday Brunch

Some info....

-We'll be staying at the Ritz downtown.
-We don't have a car, and would like to keep meals close by to our hotel.
-Basic, upscale American cuisine or some ethnic is welcome (Mexican, Italian, Greek...no Sushi, Tapas or Indian). Remember, non foodie mum so Alinea and the lot are out. :(

Help! Thanks!!
