My wife and I will be in Chicago for a weekend in April and I am trying to settle on a restaurant for a nice Saturday dinner. I know this topic has been covered before, but I seem to get a different answer with each search.
I am interested in a somewhat intimate setting with great service. No molecular gastronomy. Creative American or French inspired food. The ability to bring one's own wine for reasonable corkage is a plus, but not essential. Reasonable cab ride from River North.
I was initially set on North Pond, but since then I have heard from several locals who have had recent bad experiences.
thoughts ? Thanks in advance.
