We are treating my ILs to dinner out for their 50th Anniversary ON THE DAY (5/19). That day is during the NATO summit being held in Chicago, so we decided we are not going downtown now. So that blew our chances for amazing cuisine with a view. We want both. Food is a higher priority though.
We are willing to drive to get a great night out.
Preferrably the NW suburbs (where my ILs live).
Second choice would be the Western Suburbs (around Naperville, or Geneva, St. Charles, etc.)
I'd like to avoid a steak house - my MIL and I prefer french, small plates/portions.
Please offer suggestions!
