My husband and I will be in Chicago (we live in NY) August 13-24 visiting the family, and would like to go to one fabulous restaurant. Alinea is out, and Topo doesn't have anything available. What would be your recommendation of a place that wows us? We are open to any type of cuisine and location, but i would prefer something more on the creative side than, say, strictly ethnic- so maybe not some little Pilsner place, unless it is trully a gem (and I don't conisder Nuevo Leon a gem, though my mother-in-law loves it!). I love Green zebra, to give you an idea of what we like. I read about a gastropub that does a whole pork kind of thing- I can't remember the name, but I would be into that too. You get the idea. Thanks!
