My husband and I are visiting Chicago during the first week of November. Neither of us have been before (well, as adults anyway--a day of pizza and the Sears tower is fun for a 5-year old but I don't really think that makes me a jaded Chicago vet tourist). Our anniversary is on that Tuesday so I checked this board and some websites and made a reservation at North Pond, which isn't far from where we're staying.
Since this is a pretty significant vacation for us and it's our anniversary, I really want the experience to be fantastic. Is there anything I should be aware of or request regarding the reservation? Do I need to request a good view or is the whole restaurant pretty appealing that way? Is there someplace to avoid being seated? Anything particularly great to try on the menu?
(Tangent--we may go someplace for live music after dinner so if you have a recommendation that is in the same neighborhood that would be good to know too.)
I'm really looking forward to our week in Chicago so any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
