Flying out to Chicago for a weekend in April to meet up with a Guardsman friend who's been deployed for a year, and looking for places to go...he is a meat and potatoes guy but I'm an O/L vegetarian so there's the main twist. I'm staying near Navy Pier the first couple nights and the next couple are up in the air so open to any suggestions - looking for interesting places that would be fun for both of us and a treat for him if possible. Any ideas would be great, restaurant or otherwise! I'm from the Pacific Northwest so not familiar with much in Chicago past the stuff you go to when you're there for a tradeshow. Thank you for any help.
