My wife and I will be heading to Chicago next april. We will be on a tight budget; however, we would like to have a nice dinner on a saturday night where we could have some after-dinner drinks as well. With the exception of italian or mexican food, any cuisine would be fine. My wife usually prefers nice cocktails and I prefer draught beers and spirits. These are the restaurants we have in mind:
GT Fish and Oyster
Maude's Liquor Bar
Bavette's Bar and Boeuf (Reservations only after 10:15 pm)
The Izakaya at Momotaro
We will be saying in the Loop, but we do not mind taking a cab for dinner, if there are no nearby options. We would prefer restaurants that accept reservations.
We will appreciate your comments and recommendations!
