I used to live in Chicago about 8 years ago, and I'm coming back this weekend with my mom (12/3-12/5). Are there any new places or old good ones that you would recommend checking out? Looking for dinner Fri. and Sat., Brunch or Tea on Sat., and Brunch or Lunch on Sunday. Looking for italian/french/american/mexican/spanish - probably not so much middle eastern or asian cuisine.
We'd like to stay in the Mag. Mile, Loop, or Millenium Park area.
Thanks for your help-
