I am going to be in Chicago with my parents and sister for my birthday weekend (turning 27). I grew up in Chicago but have not been back in years and now live in Arizona. Obviously one night I have to go to ginos for a sausage patty pizza for nostalgia and certainly will be having a couple dogs while I am there, but seeing as how I am unfamiliar with the great newer food scene I was hoping for thoughts on my birthday dinner. We have eaten in many of the great/big time restaurants in NYC, Paris, London, San Fran. Was looking at spiaggia and blackbird. Have heard great things about L20 and Alinea. Thought about topolobambo, but I seriously doubt its better than the best I can get out here in Arizona. Any thoughts on the restaurants I mentioned or other ideas would be most welcome.
