Visiting from SF - Where should we eat?

John and Angella | Oct 23, 200209:11 AM

Hi everyone. We're coming into town next weekend and, thanks to recommendations on this board, are going to Ixcapuzalco on Saturday night with some friends. We've been looking through the board but we can't seem to make up our mind what to do Friday night. So if anyone wants to offer any suggestions we'd love to listen.

We're staying downtown (not that that means anything) and think we want to have an authentic "Chicago" experience (is there such a thing?). We don't need to go to some mega restaurant with super fancy or hip food because, frankly, it seems that you can get that most anywhere these days.

We've thought about a steak, and if we do we thought of trying the Chicago Chop House, but somehow that idea doesn't feel totally right. Anybody want to chime in with some of their favorites?

Thanks, and we'd love to reciprocate if you happen to be in San Francisco.
