I'm going to be visiting Chicago this coming weekend, arriving in time for dinner on Thursday and leaving after an early Sunday dinner. I'll be staying in Skokie, though I'll have a rental car.
I'd love recommendations for quality places in that general area. I'm also fine with going into Chicago itself, though my guess is that parking may be difficult and/or expensive, so if there are good places in the outlying areas, that's great. I'd like to go to at least one higher end restaurant (not $150/person, but $75 or so would be ok if it's good--I'd prefer not to have to wear a jacket, though), and I'm always into great little finds, ethnic food, etc.--just nothing that's a chain. I also have time for a great breakfast place on Friday potentially.
Any recommendations? Thanks much!
