One lunch, one dinner in Chicago - Avec, Blackbird or Green Zebra?

Kelly | Sep 5, 2009 08:20 PM

I'll be in Chicago for meetings next week and have already shamelessly coerced my boss' PA into setting up a team dinner at Frontera Grill, a longtime favourite. :o) This leaves me precisely two meals free before I hop back on the plane to Brussels. I'd like to spend those meals eating some exciting, well-sourced, sustainable if possible "American" cuisine.

I'll be downtown (our offices and my hotel are on the River at Clark and at Michigan, respectively, and don't want to venture TOO far afield -- so am hesitating at the moment between Avec, Blackbird and Green Zebra.

So, Chihounds -- if you had to choose two of those three for a lunch and a dinner, what would you choose? Many thanks in advance.

(And if I'm missing the boat completely and should try something else, let me know! It's also entirely possible that I might end up going back to Frontera for another Mexican fix -- something entirely IMpossible to get here in Brussels!)
