easter weekend with the family

Sue Lee | Feb 19, 2001 07:48 PM

My family is spending the long Easter weekend in Chicago visiting my college son. That will be my husband, boys aged 15, 18, and 20, and me, mom. We've been there many times and eaten at all the famous places, like Carson's, Frontera, Uno, Sather, Heaven on 7 (my 15 yr old's fave) even Trotter's. We'll be staying somewhere around the tourist hotels on n. Michigan, probably, but will rent a car so we can travel to food. We are looking for affordable neighborhood places where the person cooking the food is probably grandma, mom or dad, not someone who went to chef school; but mom has to be as good a cook as MY mom, and that's really good. We have pretty sophisticated tastes and ethnic is fine (we loved a place we ate on Devon, called maybe Udupi?). We'd like recs. for places to eat, where we won't have to wait for hours. Also, possibly places for fish on Good Friday (can be ethnic) and breakfast/brunch on Easter (last year we ate at house of blues - hated it. too Disney.) Thanx a million!!
