First Anniversary - Need Recommendation Near United Center

Christine | Aug 24, 200409:29 PM

My first wedding anniversary is on Sept 20. We have tickets for the London Symphony Orchestra at the United Center doing the Music of Hollywood. The show starts at 7:30.

Moto, Blackbird and MK are on the list of places we must go to at some point and are reasonably close to the UC. Are any of them open early enough for us to slowly enjoy our meal and get to the UC in a reasonable time for the show? Emilio's isn't too terribly far either and is where we went for DH's first birthday just 6 weeks after we started dating, so that would be romantic (even tho we went to the one in the suburbs on Roosevelt).

For a frame of reference, we went to Roy's recently and adored the food! It was amazing with flavor popping out of every bite! (We thought it was better than both Roy's we had been to in Hawaii! Surprising as that sounds, it is true.)

Any advice on those restaurants or others in the area would be very welcome.
