MGM, if you go to Tru you will see a crazy hot blonde girl that I worked with at a Mexican place in the West Loop. She's going there from L20. She is quite dreamy.

MJ's serves reference-point ingredients.

You've never eaten at Picholine? Their cheese cart alone is worth the visit.

Going to Chicago for st. paddys day weekend. what's a good casual restaurant for a friday night. thinking a rick bayless restaurant or the girl and goat. checked on the girl and the goat there were no reservations available......my brother said his friends just walked in but probably not on a friday night.

any other suggestions?

Also, a good Sunday brunch after checking out of the hotel? (staying at Hotel 71, anything noteworthy in the immediate area?)

thinking deep dish pizza, greek food, etc....lou malnatis any good? i've been to Giordanos and Geno's east already.

Most good food stuff in Chicago is not in the loop... but nothing's far.

MGM - these things are for you too...

For Friday night, I recommend The Bristol, Green Zebra (if you feel like Veg) or possibly Arami sushi - a little out of the way, but great and full of hawtness on a Friday night (AMIRIGHT Kwilk?)

The Pump Room is a new Vonrichgten venture similar to ABC in NYC.. worth a shot
Gilt Bar is also serving some pretty decent stuff right now
And the Boka group places are all good (GT Fish & Oyster, Boka, Perennial Virant and they are also opening a new one in partnership with the chef from the Bristol)

My wife and I waited for 45 minutes in their lounge and got a table on Friday night. They have a good drink selection and a full menu in the lounge too so it's not bad.

Yes, but, Everest doesn't have the hot FOH lady that I know.

But on the realz, you have any recommendations for STL? I live a couple hours upstream on the Mississippi River and would love to learn some good places to go.

niche is the best restaurant in stl by a wide margin

sidney street cafe, truffles, acero, farmhaus, and salt are also pretty decent

for pizza, pi and the good pie are both awesome

pappy's smokehouse is a staple for bbq

Awesome, thanks. BTW, if your'e into wine or whisky at all, you should check out 33 wine bar. Their wine cellar is freaking amazing, as is their whisky selection. They had a great selection when I went back in October, and they told me their main focus for the next few months was to expand that selection.

Most importantly, the service and knowledge of the staff is worthy of a world-class city like NYC or SF, perhaps even higher on average. Everyone there really knows their stuff.

Cool, I might check out GT Fish and Oyster or Arami on that Friday (probably GT fish since its closer to the hotel).

Planning to do Hot Doug's too.....maybe Lou Malanti's.

any feedback on PRIMEHOUSE. Interested in trying the 55 day dry aged beef.

any sunday brunch recommendations? checking out on Sunday but will have a car, so could go anywhere really.
