I'm going to be in the Chicago area for my anniversary in a few weeks. I'll be staying with my husband's family in Deerfield. We're actually there to celebrate husband's nephew's bar mitzvah. I'm sure everyone's focus is going to be on that, so I don't want to pressure my BIL and his family to choose a nice romantic restaurant for us. It's not up to them to see to it that we a little time to ourselves to celebrate our anniversary in Chicago or in the Deerfield area. That's why I'm asking for help here.
We don't want to spend huge amounts of money. We're not looking for anything really pricey, but we don't want a chain restaurant (or chain restaurant quality) either. The $50-$100 per person range is what we can afford.
Places that specialize in steak or seafood aren't a good idea since he doesn't eat the former and I don't eat the latter.
We eat most cuisines: Italian, French, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Latin American, etc. We're pretty open as to type. As long as it has good food, a nice atmosphere, and good service, the actual cuisine is unimportant.
I've only been to the Chicago area a couple of times, so I know diddlysquat about the food scene and what the best restaurants in the area are.
