Looking for a fun place to go with one other person on his birthday. Neither one of us are big talkers, so we need stimulation around us. We have very different tastes. He's a beer drinker. I love wine and champagne. He's a smoker. I like clean air!! We both love sushi and spicy food.
Ideally I'd like to find a place that has lively atmoshpere, and good food. Ideal locations- River North, South Loop, West Loop, North Michigan Ave., Lincoln Park, or Lakeview/Wrigleyville.
Atmoshpere matters more than type of cuisine. Quality of food must be excellent though.
