Thanks Chicago hounds for the Winnetka tips!

We arrived Friday, wedding was Saturday in Winnetka, flew home Sunday. Tekkatsu was between our motel and the church,and looking for it we found the Chicago Botanical Gardens and Lake Michigan. Lunch at Tekkatsu was delicious, and a good bargain. The atmosphere at Sunday lunch was very serene - after all the wedding activity.

La Bella Winnetka had, with about a month's notice, set up a garden tent beside the restaurant. Yes, I know this is December, but it was warm and festive. Calamari and pizza for appetizers, and a dinner that was surprisingly well done of lasagne, chicken with wine and capers, salmon and asparagus.

We had a good time, and hope to return for another visit (Pakistani breakfast?) when I can get time off from my new pastry job at a soon to open seafood restaurant in Kenmore Square. If y'all get to Boston, look me up! Thank you.
