25th Anniversary - Romance and Memories

gimpeaux | May 1, 2008 04:37 AM

My 25th anniversary is coming up May 29. I'm surprising my wife by taking her back to Chicago - even staying at a small hotel near the area where we lived back from 1980-85 (New Town, as it was then called - just west of Sheridan between Belmont and Diversey). Now, going to Chicago is not a long trip to a place we rarely see or eat (we live in Highland Park), but I'd like to find a restaurant that is special. I've thought of Tru or Charlie Trotter's (the latter of which we've eaten at a few times, but not in the last 10 years), but for this dinner, I don't really want a meal that involves studying and observing the food, if you know what I mean. We both like virtually every cuisine. It certainly doesn't need to be anything that was around way back then (is anything?), and anywhere in the city is fine. Warm service, a place where we can have a good conversation, a beautiful view wouldn't hurt -- and, of course, great food. Thanks for any ideas.
