I'd love to hear all of your responses. I was thinking about this today, and for some reason it seems like we end up at West Town Tavern quite often. We've been at least 4 or 5 times in the last year/year and a half and are going again tonight! This time it's planned w/ a reservation, although it's usually our middle-of-the-week haunt.
We absolutely love the ambiance there and the food - for what it is and what it's priced at - is really quite wonderful. Service is typically great, but we have had one or two snafus before. Never to a point of not considering going back, though.
Other go-to places for us are our neighborhood sushi joints... We have been to several great restuarants more than once, but I think WTT wins the prize! With so many fantastic restaurants in Chicago, what are some that we might be missing? All genres welcome!
