Hello Chicago Hounds,
I need a nice (but not too fancy) Italian restaurant for dinner on February 10th. Our first choice was Picolo Sogno but that wasn't available so I now have reservations at Shaw's since our guest loves fish and seafood.
That said, we've never been to Shaw's and somehow I'm not overly excited about it as we really did have our hearts set on Italian.
I was wondering whether you could recommend something similar to Picolo Sogno (one of our favourites!). . . even better if the restaurant is known for their fish/seafood.
This is a pretty casual trip (no evening ware) and we have reservations at the following spots (some old faves, some new to us as recommended here):
The Girl & the Goat
We also plan to have lunch at the Purple Pig and Bar Toma
FYI, our guest dines frequently at Riccardo Trattoria otherwise, that would have been our second choice for Italian.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We'll be travelling by taxi from River North.
