40th birthday for chitown foodie!

ljero | Oct 30, 2012 05:14 PM

I will be staying at the Hotel Monaco for work trip which coincides with my upcoming 40th (kids and husband at home to celebrate with later in the weekend). I am taking my mom, also a huge foodie. we are there from a wed to a sat.

We enjoy all types of food, but ambience is equally important. Also would like three nights of different types of food. Looking for three of the best meals to experience and cocktails, too. I have done my research and now need some help!


I reserved Beast for the 6p seating-is this worth it? what about the wine pairings--they sound like tiny pours?


maybe a coco doughnut to begin the day?
open all day
need a lunch spot
considering: ox, toro bravo, aviary for dinner--others? which is best in your opinion?


lunch at pok pok (i loved this place and have to return);
cocktail somewhere with great ambience: tear drop, woodsman, kask or secret society-which would we like best for ambience as well as great cocktails and/or wine?
dinner is le pigeon


PSU before we fly out for verde cocina, nuvrei and pine state

thanks so much for the help!
