Was walking past Hot Chocolate on Damen the other day ago and was thinking of recommending it for an upcoming girls' birthday dinner. I read really good reviews in the newspapers/mags, etc., but the reviews on Metromix were HORRIBLE. Has anyone eaten here? Also, any good suggestions in the Near North area for a nice, but reasonable birthday dinner (for guideance, past places we've been to are MOD, Bistro 110, Cafe Absinthe, Bistro Margot, Coast, Sai Cafe, Adobo...). Thanks in advance for your help!
