Ottolenghi- amazing
Grainger and co- interesting and healthy, liked it
Amaya- excellent
J sheekey- delicious

I ended up moving to a spot in lakview near the Southport EL stop. I really like this co-op in Logan Square called The Dill Pickle. Any chance you know of a market or place similar to this in lakeview? Some place with a decent selection of produce and specialty items. Thanks!

Going to Gloucester with a few friends for the Bruins game. We are three 23 year olds. Looking for dive bars and good food. Any bars that we can't miss? Any great places to watch a B's game?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you! I have actually been to Olivia's and loved it! How about a good Greek specialty store? I assume Greektown but I just thought I'd ask.

Hey Hounders,

I finally got a full time job and I am making the move to my favorite city, Chicago! I have done a fair amount of visiting and restaurant-trying because I went to school in Madison, WI. I don’t know where I am living yet, but most likely Wrigleyville, Lakeview, or Bucktown.

A little background on myself; I am 23 years old, in the Finance industry and have an extreme passion for food. At the moment I am Istanbul, Turkey taking in all that the city has to offer food wise.

These are all of the restaurants I have ever been to in Chicago and my brief (very brief thoughts):

• Avec – In love
• Mexique - Loved
• Portillos – Didn’t like
• Hub 51 - Ok
• Prime Bar - Decent
• One North Kitchen and Bar - Terrible
• Sable – Liked it
• Longman and Eagle – Awesome!
• Lula Café – Liked it
• The Little Goat – eh, so-so
• Green Zebra - Love
• Gino’s- Didn’t like
• Hubbard Inn- Like it

Could you recommend some spots for me? Looking for restaurants and bars if possible.

Also, are there any magazines or local publications I should be reading?

Thanks!

Weekend with the GF

Thanks for all of the great responses. I am staying on N. Michigan between Ontario and Ohio. I have been to Mexique and loved it! Girl and Goat looks pretty good, maybe we will try that.

Weekend with the GF

Hounders,

Going to Chicago on Friday for the first time in about a year. We are doing Avec for dinner on Saturday, and we are looking for some advice for Friday night.

Not picky at all, love sushi, italian, french, etc. Would prefer something with entrees less than $25 and an excellent draft beer list and great wine. We are each 22 years old, so something fun and hip is preferred.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers.

DC for a college kid

Hi Chowhounders,

I will be doing an internship in DC for 2.5 months. I am looking for recommendations for bars and restaurants. I am willing to splurge on a dinner if it is worth it, but I also love hole-in-the-walls. I love italian, japanese, and mediterranean cuisine. On a college budget!

Any help would be great

Hey Chowhounders,

Myself and 2 friends are going to our first cubs game. We are from Madison, and are looking for good bars to go to before the game as well as a good fun place to eat after the game. We are very into the food scene and appreciate good food, but we also have shallow pockets, but are willing to splurge if the food is worth it. thanks in advance!!

Hi everyone,

I am going to Miami for spring break with a few friends. We are college kids very much into the restaurant scene and appreciate good restaurants and bars. We would like to keep spending down but are willing to splurge if the food is worth it. Any recommendations for restaurants, bars, clubs etc... any help is greatly appreciated.

Suggestions for 7 College Kids in MTL

Hey Chowhounders,
Me and 7 friends are going to Montreal for spring break and we are looking for food suggestions, bar suggestions and club suggestions. Obviously cheaper is better for us but we are willing to splurge if the food is worth it. I know about Joe Beef, and Shwartz's but other than that I am pretty uninformed. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. GO CANADIENS!

Dinner Recs for two 19 year olds

I am visiting a friend of mine who is living in Manhattan this summer. We love to venture out and we are up for anything you suggest. It's my first time in nyc since 8th grade so I am very unfamiliar with the restaurant scene. We especially love french, italian, and latin cuisine. thanks.
