recommendations needed - relocating from NYC

kat | Jan 26, 2006 10:59 AM

I am relocating to Chicago in April (from NYC). I have never been to Chicago before, am going this weekend to scope it out and am taking my mother with me.

We are staying at the Hyatt Regency, and I would love some dinner suggestions (this Saturday Eve). We would not be opposed to taking a cab/public transport to reach a good restaurant.

I would love to try some of the Mexican options, but my mother isn't crazy about Mexican food.

I think Avec might put her off with the communal dining.

Can anyone suggest something fairly moderate & reasonably accesible?

Is Frontera a good option? My mother does have a fondness for celebrity chefs.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
