Coco Pazzo Cafe= thanks hounds!

We had wonderful weekend trip to Chicago (conference for berkleygary).

Thanks to the hounds we had a stellar dinner at Coco Pazzo Cafe, walkable from our hotel. Convivial atmosphere - a whole lot of history profs/teachers/writers there for the conference got the vibe to go there.

Loved the murals on the wall. And it was cozy but still room between tables. Some of the best service I've had in years, personal, interested a little quirky. The pappardelle w/ wild boar ragu totally rocked. Could only eat half, just great as a reheat when we got home. Carpaccio a little weak but the parm was just delicious. berkleygary's veal was pristine yet very flavorful - but I won with the ragu.
Wine prices were very reasonable and added to the meal.

I'd go back in a second. Thanks all.
