My wife and I will be in Chicago over labor day weekend and needed some advice over where to eat one of our nights. We are already signed up for Blackbird, Spiaggia, and Alinea on my birthday. But for our fourth night we are up in the air between either L2O, Tru, or Publican.
Which would you choose? Granted, I realize Publican is totally different, but we wondered if it would be a nice mix to go for pork offal and beer after the more formal places like Spiaggia and Alinea. Then again, we also hear really great things about L2O and Tru. I'm thinking maybe we are too late to score the Tatami room for L2O. Also, that would be more expensive than Alinea, and I don't know if that seems worth it. Any comments would be appreciated.
We wouldn't have to make this choice if Schwa hadn't called me back and broke our hearts by saying they are closed the week we are there (Sept 2 - 6). So sad about that. :(
