Ok. Hubby works in restaurant in N.O. classified as contemporary creole, dinner for 2 about $200, give or take. His boss has offered to buy us dinner at a comparable restaurant while we vacation in Chicago. I've done some checking and am looking into Blackbird (leaning towards here), Spring (close 2nd), Mk, Northpond, Custom House, and Spiaggia. Some other restraurants looked great, but trying to stay somewhat contemporary, not too ethnic, since this is for "research". Any help would be greatly appreciated.
