One night in Chicago and Alinea is booked

Frobisher | Apr 5, 2011 12:27 PM

I will be in Chicago in the middle of May for work and will have one night free for dinner with my wife. Based on my search of the boards and research Alinea would seem to be the consensus choice. Unfortunately, it appears I am too late to get a reservation.

So what's second best? Or perhaps more precisely, what's second best that I can't get in NY or Boston. My research turns up Trotter, Naha, Graham Elliot, Sable, Boka, L2O and Avenues. Anyone have a recommendation? I will probably have a car so location is not an issue. Open to any type of cuisine except Italian.

Also I will be having a business lunch in Schaumburg same as the dinner. Any suggestions in that neck of the woods?
