Hello all, I have three nights in Chicago (coming from SF). For two of those nights, I will be alone. I am planning on going to Meiji for dinner on one of those night. Any other recommendations for solo dining?
Now, more importantly, my friend is joining me in Chicago for a fun weekend away. I want to treat her with a special dining experience as a reward for flying out. So, I am trying to get reservations at Alinea. Failing that, are there other recommendations of restaurants with amazing food?
I have looked on this board and seen the following:
1. Matsumoto (if I can get in)
2. Avenue (open, but is it worth the money)
4. North Pond
5. Trio Atelier
Thanks in advance for your help!
