We're off to Chicago next weekend. I made reservations at Vermilion for Friday night because I thought we would likely be at Andy's Jazz Club for happy hour. Now I'm thinking we'll probably skip Andy's this trip. I just took another look at the Vermilion menu, and now I'm rethinking the reservation.
We're staying in the River North neighborhood, arriving late Friday afternoon. Friday can't be too long/late an evening because I have to teach all day on Saturday. Dining "in the neighborhood" would be nice but is not necessary. We have reservations at Topolobampo for Saturday night. I'm an ovo-lacto vegetarian but my partner eats meat. Other than my meat issue, we're pretty open to cuisines.
Any thoughts for that Friday night dinner? Or should I just stick with the Vermilion reservation?
We're also considering doing a nice brunch on Sunday. I'm currently considering Bistro 110 and Cuatro but welcome other suggestions for brunch with live music.
