Hi Chicago Hounds,
I'm meeting up with my bf and his father in Chicago 2 weekends from now. While my entire family is from the Chicago area I haven't been in awhile...and usually when I visit we are going to Grandma's favorite early bird special joint.
I'm vaguely familar with the dining scene there but mostly I know the super high end spots (Tru, Everest, Charlie Trotters etc.)
We will be there Friday, Sat, and Sunday and I'm trying to do a little research on some of the best restaurants in town that are under $100/person. For Sat. night we will probably go to the nice, expensive, we-are-being-treated-by-Dad dinner. We are all fairly adventorous eaters--although the bf and I are more so then his Dad. But he's into various ethnic foods and likes good Italian, French, American etc. So what would you suggest? What are some of the hottest restaurants right now?
We are also looking for other suggestions for Friday night dinner (will be more on the later end when we get in...probably around 8pm or so) and Sunday dinner...earlier end before we fly out.
Unfortunatly I don't know where we are staying yet, so I can't give you direction there. But various price ranges and styles would be great.
