Chicago Memorial Day Weekend

SobeChower | May 13, 2014 10:17 AM

I need help setting up my eating itinerary for the weekend. I am an adventurous eater, but unfortunately my wife is a little picky and needs a few safe, simple options on the menu.

We don't want anything pre-fixe or ridiculously expensive like Alinea, but expensive is Ok - as long as it isn't stuffy. I tend to prefer casual and fun with really good food, but good food is the most important.

We are probably going to Frontera on Saturday for Brunch/Lunch - Is it still good?

We are meeting up with some friends for 1 of the meals. Would love a good suggestion - For this meal I would prefer it to be reasonably priced (Under $50 per person total) with an accessible menu.

Is Tavern on Rush good for Sunday Brunch? Better Suggestions? Somewhere that will be busy and food with really good food. Possibly outdoor seating if the weather is nice.

Dinner options - Sable/ GT Oyster / Girl & the Goat? /

Best Italian? Japanese?

Lou Malnati's for lunch on Monday?

Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions!

Alinea,
Frontera Grill,
Lou Malnati's Pizzeria
