Looking for some advice. We will be in Chicago in May and my birthday happens to coincide with this trip. My husband and I are looking to go out to a nice dinner. We love high end dining and have done tasting menus before (The Dining Room at the Ritz in San Francisco; Cyrus in Healdsburg) and really enjoyed them, but sometimes they are just a bit too much! We tend towards mid-high end dining, and do enjoy having a few choices other than a tasting menu. On a previous trip, we went to Blackbird for a great lunch, to give some perspective as to what we like. Also for this trip, we will be doing brunch at The Publican, so that base is covered.
Thoughts we have thrown around -
Charlie Trotter's:this would be our last opportunity to dine there.
Tru: Food looks great, option of tasting or 3 course prix fixe.
Naha: haven't looked into it to much but like what I have briefly read.
We definitely want something unique and "Chicago". We live in San Francisco and we love dining out, so give me your best rec's!
