We're taking it easy at the Glorietta Bay Inn (former sugar baron mansion, I guess?) for a couple days between Christmas and New Year's. We'd like to hit a couple places for a decent meal. Doesn't need to be fancy, but we don't mind spending money for something special. Favorites in Chicago are Tru and Alinea, and we loved Michael Mina when we were in SF last.
Seems like we should be able to find killer sushi and Mexican (which we have here, too). Any/all recommendations greatly appreciated.
