My wife and sister-in-law are headed to the Hyatt downtown this next week (29th-2nd) for business. Living a few hours from San Francisco, they both regularly enjoy the bakeries throughout the City and in North Beach. I'd like to send them to the best bakeries in the Chicago area preferably ones with an inclination towards chocolate! They won't be driving at all, but are willing to take public transportation.
Also, reviewing the board I've discovered Leonidas for Gelato and Chocolate and CaramelCrisp for...caramelcrisp? (Never heard of it but it sounds good! They will be wandering through The Taste of Chicago while they're there also. Thanks from the West Coast!
