My boyfriend is turning 30 soon and I'd like to take him someplace where I know they will treat it like the special occasion that it is. Some of the things I'm looking for:
1) Location - can be anywhere in the near north/south/west areas of Chicago (i.e. West loop, S. loop, Bucktown, Old Town, etc. are all o.k.) We just don't want to have to cab it too far from Lakeview.
2) Cuisine - not too picky. He really likes Mexican, but we just love good food in general.
3) Cost - I'd like to stay away from anything very expensive. Moderate to slightly expensive is more my range.
Any and all suggestions would be welcome. Feel free to tell me why you think it would be a special place to go to.
