There are six of us all together, several of whom are coming in from out of town to celebrate my mom’s 90th birthday on a Saturday night. We would like to do this at a great Chicago restaurant. We are based in Hyde Park so a trip to the Near North Side is fine, but anything further out would be a bit of a trek. Criteria should include high-quality food, cocktails and wine; a comfortable and tasteful atmosphere that is conducive to great conversation; and a professional and attentive staff. (My mom has advanced Alzheimer’s, and would probably use a walker or wheelchair. My dad who is 88 and in better health is also part of the group. The others are offspring/in-laws.) We’re not looking for a super trendy place that is loud and crowded. An example of the type of place my parents like is Shaw’s Crab House, but we go there frequently and are looking for something a bit more special. (Other restaurants they like include Kiki’s Bistro, MK, West Town Tavern, and Mon Ami Gabi.) Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
