My wife and I have a full day In Chicago. We are looking for an area where we can park the car and walk from place to place, checking out lounges and restaurants. We have just spent the last few years in LA and we are taking our time driving back to our hometown, Cleveland, OH. I have been working as F/B Director for Donald Trump's LA Golf Course so needless to say, the less pretentious the better!
We hear the Wicker Park area is perfect for this. Looking for suggestions from where to park, where to go to lunch (casual, truly a Chicago restaurant) where to go to dinner (fine-dining without the stuffiness) and local flavor taverns (we love the joints the locals frequent).
Will be posting from the road starting Sept. 29...Anahwahee in Yosemite, small bites along Rt. 6 in Nevada (the middle of nowhere but I'm determined to find local flavor), Kelly Liken in Vail, CO, just to name a few. Stopping in some small towns along the way, trying to find that local flavor that is truly unique. Also, wherever we land in Chicago.
Looking forward to your suggestions.
