I'll be traveling with my boyfriend and it's going to be a nice weekend, romantic trip for us and a chance to explore a new city together, even though we've both been to chicago separately, it'll be a new "couple" experience for us. we're big foodies here in LA and are completely ready to eat our way through chicago and obviously explore what else the city has to offer.

- i have reservations for charlie trotter's, but have also been hearing about moto - honestly both of these are not my first choice, as i really wanted to go to alinea, but if forced to choose between the two, which one would be better?

- i also have reservations for nomi the next night, but i'm not hearing anything amazing about their food, only about the view. so i was thinking of going to avec or the bristol instead as a foodie thing and then just going for drinks to the violet hour and the signature lounge or maybe even the w on the lake?

- i have brunch reservations at sepia. any other suggestions? i really like sepia so far, but am completely open to other options.

obviously in between, we'll do other touristy things like hot dogs, italian beef sandwiches, deep-dish pizza, millenium park, etc.

any recommendations or "stop, don't eat THERE!" advice would be tremendously helpful. our last few trips together haven't been so great. we're hoping for this one to be a make-up for all our bad trips.
