I'm a Philadelphia Chowhound who seeks your advice. I will be spending a long weekend with my Mother in Chicago and we are looking for some great dining. My mother plans to drop plenty of cash and will want a nice atmosphere. While in Philly I am more adventurous and go to the great dives, while in Chicago with my mother, I'm looking more for great food, wine, and atmosphere.
We currently have reservations Saturday night for NoMi. How is that?
We are looking for a great restaurant for Sunday brunch and also Sunday dinner. My mother doesn't care for curry, Chinese, or Mexican food (although I'm sure it's because she has never tried it prepared correctly.) Since we have such first rate Italian in Philly, she also prefers to eat something else while in Chicago.
I look forward to your advice.
