Classy Chicago New American or Italian for my parents

brian sholis | Dec 7, 2001 02:01 PM


I am a New Yorker with parents back home in Chicago. I am a bit more adventurous with my dining, seeking out cuisines I've never before tasted, but my parents are not quite at that point. Therefore, I am looking for a classy (but not too fancy) American or Italian restaurant in Chicago at which I could purchase a gift certificate for them. Good bets look like North Pond Cafe and Crofton on Wells... any other suggestions like this? The only place I remember them frequenting from my youth is the Oak Terrace. Any suggestions are truly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Brian Sholis
