First time visitor this summer - Dress norms in restaurants/bars?

Newbie | Mar 8, 2005 07:47 AM

My wife and I will be making our first trip to Chicago June 23-27. What's good to eat? Just kidding. Hopefully I will be asking more informed questions than that as I do my research on what/where we have to eat. One quick question to start off. What do people usually wear in 1-2 star places or non-divey bars in the Chicago summer? I live in Virginia and feel comfortable wearing nice buttoned down shirt with khaki shorts while dining out here in during the summer, but is that generally appropriate in Chicago (will we have a blinking "tourist" sign on our back if we dress like that?)? I swear my questions will get more "chowy" as the time to visit grows closer, but this info will help. Thanks.
