Hi beloved Chicago hounds,
I will be in town this weekend with my wife and 2-year-old daughter. We are staying in the Lincoln Park area, right by the zoo. I'd love some recs for the following,
1. Saturday dinner near hotel -- biggest criteria is kid-friendly. We are open to all types of cuisine. Interesting wine/beer/spirits list would be nice. We would be going on the earlier side (6ish), so don't hesitate to suggest a place that would otherwise be too crowded.
2. Sunday lunch in Bucktown/Wicker Park -- I'm thinking something solid yet casual like Milk and Honey. Thoughts?
3. Sunday dinner anywhere in Chicago -- We want Mexican the likes of which we cannot get in NYC. I enjoyed Frontera and Salpicon (esp the latter) the last time I was there in 2004. Again, we will be dining on the early side with a well-behaved 2-year-old. Interesting/rare tequila lists a huge plus.
Hopefully, my requests aren't too broad. If they are, let me know and I will try to winnow things down.
