I will be in Chicago for a quick business trip on the nights of 7-31-17 and 8-1-17 (Monday and Tuesday to be more specific as I know that may affect recommendations). I would love to get some recommendations of truly amazing restaurants.
Last summer I reached out to Chicago Chowhounders and received a recommendation to Mexique among others. I must say Mexique was one of the top three meals I have ever had in my life.
I've been to Chicago about 4 other times. The Purple Pig is one of my favorites. I also went to Dusek's last year the night after Mexique. The cocktails and vibe were awesome as was the service, but I was not overly impressed with the food. I think we did it wrong trying to split small plates among 4 people, but I did not see enough to go back.
If you all could throw out some recommendations that would be great.
To dial it in a bit, I am not really interested in any Italian recommendations as we have great Italian in Rhode Island. Same with Seafood.
I generally like really creative food. I love tasting menus if they are relatively reasonably priced $60 to $80 per person.
Always love to support James Beard winners and or Michelin starred places.
Can wait to see what you all come up with.
