We are a group of six middle-aged male conference-goers arriving in Chicago May 4th. Our plan is to enjoy the weekend incl taking in a Cubs game prob Saturday afternoon, as the conf does not get underway until Sunday evening. We will be staying at the Palmer House.
So we have two evening restaurants to plan: Friday and Saturday. We are all carnivores and love our wine. Like most tourists, we are looking for authentic Chicago eating and drinking experiences.
Based on my research here so far, I like the sound of Piccolo Sogno, but it is not close to the hotel. Something tells me that we should be looking in River North for proximity?
I tend to agree with some comments that one need not dine at a Steakhouse to enjoy a good steak. With that in mind, is there something that fits the bill within walking distance of our hotel?
Finally, a good bar for a martini or two in the Loop?
Thanks from Mtl.
