Will have two nights free next weekend in Chicago. In the barren wastelands of Alberta it is impossible to get decent Thai or Mexican, so we would like to try both. I've heard Rick Bayless's Mexican places are good and we may go to one of those (even if he did lose to Bobby Flay on the Iron Chef!). What other Mexican places should we consider, and where should we go for great Thai?
(We are staying near Michigan and Walton).
Thanks for a Calgary chowhound, Chris.
