Schwa or El Ideas?

FoodHasTheRightToMe | May 28, 2012 11:38 AM

Full Disclosure:

I travel once every few months to Chicago for vacation. I can only pick 1 restaurant per trip.

I have been to Schwa.
I have not been to El Ideas.

I had an AMAZING time at Schwa. I want to try El Ideas but its really hard to talk myself out of going back to Schwa again.

Schwa went above and beyond to satisfy us…both entertainment and cuisine (7 courses more then they said they would bring out).

Is El Ideas a "filling" and "satisfying" and "entertaining" experience?

For those of you who have been to both…

Which did you enjoy more? (and) Wouldn't you say they are fairly comparable?

Thanks. (and I love ideas for new places if there are any others in the same type of concept category)
