I have a foodie friend visiting Chicago next weekend (5/4-5/5) while on her way from Baltimore to Minneapolis. We met while we were both living in Seattle and enjoyed delicious Seattle food finds from the best Sushi to phenomenal Halibut and Salmon.
She's been to Chicago once before last fall and I took her to Lou's for pizza. She's visited Gino's with another friend so I think exposing her to the pizza scene would be redundant.
I'd love some great ideas on quintessential Chicago dining. While I've been to Everest and Tru, they are not on our radar this visit.
