This is my first trip to Chicago and I'm looking for a great Italian place to carbo load before the marathon that will be nice/upscale enough to also celebrate my mother in-law's 65th. We will be a party of eight including my two toddlers and will be staying near Grant Park. I live in a very rural area so relish any opportunity to have good food while out of town. My husband and I have reservations at Tru on Monday--luckily grandma and grandpa will babysit. Thanks!
