Looking for recommendations for Paris and Chicago, will be spending two nights in each city next week. Looking for a great place with atmosphere, culture, but not breaking the bank. Non-touristy venues preferred. Thanks!
Restaurant Recommendations - Page 92
Lao Sze Chuan in Chinatown (as good as or better than anything I had in Shanghai or HK) $
Takashi - french / japanese fusion from a master chef $$$
Arami - sushi - west town $$$
West town tavern - west town - very reliable american food $$
The Bristol - lincoln park - hipster food $$
Lockdown burgers - west town - $
Fontaine de Mars $$ (wasn't touristy until Obama went there, but it's still awesome)
Chez Andre or Atlas for seafood $$
Gayot by Gagnierre (his more casual place) $$$
I spent last week at The Greenbrier and had a great meal to report.
At Slammin' Sammies at the golf course my GF and I had "crab stuffed shrimp". It was served with wonderful mashed potatoes and perfectly cooked Asparagus with a perfectly balanced sauce, It was delicious and I do not hesitate to recommend it. This was at the sports bar, but it is also available at Sam Snead's, a white table cloth version next door. We did all but lick the plate.
