My husband and I are taking a trip to Chicago at the end of August and would love some recommendations on great places to eat and drink. We're looking for great food- upscale dining and more casual places are equally appreciated, as long as the food is great. We're staying in the Magnificent Mile area- but are willing to travel by taxi for great food.
Also, if you have any recommendations for cocktail bars, that would be great. We prefer craft/classic cocktails- our favorite places across the US are The Varnish (LA), Bourbon and Branch (San Francisco), Smuggler's Cove (San Francisco), Bar Uncommon (NOLA), Arnaud's (NOLA), Weather Up (Austin)- among others.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations!
