We are visiting Chicago from Dec 25 till Jan 1. We love restaurants like Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal, Cochon, August and Luke in New Orleans, Incanto and Chez Pannise in SFO and BYOBs in Philadelphia like Audrey Claire, basically unpretentious contemporary or modern-ethnic and pig-centric places. With that in mind, can someone please comment on the list we have for Chicago.
Takashi or Slurping Turtle
Deep Dish Pizza (Uno perhaps or any other suggestions?)
Girl and the Goat (reserved)
EL Ideas (haven't heard from them yet)
Longman and Eagle
We will either be staying near Millennium Park or close to Magnificent Mile and we won't have a car. A short taxi ride is okay. Any suggestions? Thanks very much.
