I have avidly read this Chicago page, and I love all the information on it, and I think I know many of the great restaurants in your fine city. However, we will be there over for a sports weekend over Labor Day (Temple-Notre Dame and Phillies-Cubs). We are staying at the Drake and will be relying on the El and cabs.
If we can't get reservations at some of the more popular restaurants (The Girl and the Goat) or don't want to wait two hours for a table at others (The Purple Pig, Frontera etc), I would be very interested in very good restaurants that might be a bit easier to get into. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
