Manhattan Chowhoud Heading to Chicago

jenniebnyc | Mar 10, 2005 04:54 PM

Manhattanite taking her first trip to Chicago for the weekend at the end of April. Staying at the Fairmont.

Need some recommendations:
For a Friday dinner - nothing too fancy on this night. We were thinking Bin 36? Is this fun and casual? Price doesn't matter. Any other recommendations? We are going to save our "fancy" dinner for Saturday, so something upbeat and possibly nearby the hotel. I don't know the area at all. Like all types of food, but can get mostly eveything in NYC, so something "Chicago-esque" would be great.

Saturday day - need a lunch spot. Hopefully something in Greektown. We will be heading to the Frank Lloyd Wright Museum.

Saturday night - upscale dinner. Nothing too stuffy though.

And Sunday brunch?

Also any other recommedations are welcomed. I hear there is something called Garret's popcorn I must try. Anything dogs, pizza, etc.

Thanks for all your help. I will reciprocate the advice if you ever head my way!
