Next -- worth it? Itinerary advice for this week.

mythflora | Jan 5, 201406:02 PM

Traveling with the hubby who has requested excellent food (and who in his heart also loves excellent beer). In Chicago, we have eaten at Moto, Tru, and Alinea (preferred Moto -- less pretentious), and are a younger couple with adventurous leanings.

We get into town Wednesday night, and I had planned to walk to Au Cheval for a low-key dinner and beers, but I've just seen that there are some very late 2-tops available at NEXT. Is it worth it?

Current itinerary:
Thursday lunch: Frontera (staying in River North, so xoco also possible -- had an amazing torta there last spring)
Thursday dinner: Grace
Friday dinner: Little Goat + cocktails at Aviary
Saturday: a place with great drafts in Wicker Park? Seeing friends, so they may have a place in mind.

Will we regret missing Next? Will we regret missing the food and drink at Au Cheval? Is there a low key, but classy pub in walking distance of River North or Wicker Park that we should be considering?

Any advice much appreciated!

Frontera Grill,
Tortas Frontera,
