Hi Foodies!
I will be in St. Charles and will have a chance to go to the city for 1 or 2 weekends. I did some hunting on the board, and I asked a foodie I met from Chicago and this is what I came up with. I will be in a party of 4 at the Intercontinental on Norht Michigan Ave

Brunch:House of Blues, Orange, Heaven on Seven

Lunch: Topolobampo, Frontera Fresco. Hot Dougs

Dinner: If I can get in, Schwa and/or Girl and the Goat, Uno or Due for Deep Dish, Davanti Entoecha, A Tavola

Thoughts? :D

I want a mixture of really darn good food and something very Chicago-y.
On my last visit, I enjoyed Bongo Room (Well it was crazy rich and I felt sick for a bit) and I thought Giordanos wasn't that great (but I got it delivered so maybe thats why). Had fantastic Italian pasta at a place that starts with a B...but can't recall. Are the hot dogs up to the hype?

Thanki yo!
