Upscale Diners

Hey Chow Hound friends,

I am the owner of a wine bar and a food truck in Calgary. My chef and I are hitting your town for 4 days in May (17 to 20) to eat and research a new upscale diner project we are working on. We would love a little local insight and any recommendations you might have.

We are staying at the Westin River North, but are willing to travel anywhere in Chicago to see and eat at the right places. We hope to eat at at least 12 to 15 breakfast places in our short stay.

We‘re looking for classic, been around forever diners, as well as new concepts that take a twist on the old school and use high end ingredients, chef driven menus, design, etc...
Hipper places that are more evening focused but do a great brunch would also be of interest.

We‘ve done a little research and here is our current list of possible places......

Delish Diner
Eleven City Diner
Bongo Room

What do you think?
