We are from Vancouver, Canada and will be going to Chicago for 3 nights near the end of May. We are not bringing our kids so are looking forward to being able to go to places we otherwise can't. Our hotel is the Soho house which I beleive is located in the West Loop area.
We are looking for recommendations for lunch and dinner on Friday, brunch or a light breakfast and lunch for Saturday, and brunch and dinner on Sunday. It would be great to get recommendations for a good coffee/pastry or doughnut shop as well. I like the idea of trying a Rick Bayless restaurant for sure but can't decide which one for which meal?
I should mention that I am a pescatarian who likes to eat fresh, local, sustainable and organic when possible while my husband likes meat and will eat anything as long as it tastes good. For our Friday night dinner, I would like something with a sceney/buzzy atmosphere. A bar/lounge recommendation after dinner would also be great. The restaurants don't have to be in the west loop.
