Ultimate Chicago Food Weekend

nmprisons | | Dec 24, 2008 04:55 PM

I moved out of Chicago about 18 months ago and miss it terribly. I am thinking about having an all out weekend in the city during August. Here is my plan for the ultimate food weekend. Please help me perfect the plan:


Fly from New York to Chicago. Check into hotel (any suggestions? I loved a recent stay at Trump, but would consider others)

Dinner at Moto (wish they served lunch). I haven't eaten here before, but it is pretty up there on my list of places I want to go.


Can't figure out lunch. Any suggestions?

Dinner at Alinea (have wanted to return since my visit two years ago. better than any meal I have had in New York since---including per se)


Brunch at Hot Chocolate (all time favorite place to eat)

Check out of hotel and fly back to New York

I am assuming Moto is more fun than Tru and at least almost as tasty as Charlie Trotter, is that true?
