I'm coming to Chicago from San Francisco on Sunday, flying back Monday. My biggest phobia is missing the fantastic dining opportunity.
I have ONE night.
Where should I go?
I don't want to go totally high-end. I've been to Topolobampo (and loved it.) I'm intrigued by what I hear about Blackbird -- the room, at least -- but haven't been there. I love a hip, buzzing room, but not if the food is bad. I love neighborhood places. I love places where chefs go after work. I can get great Cal-Med food in California, so I'm not looking for that. Where should I go? What should I eat in Chicago -- what experience should I have -- that I couldn't have anywhere else?
