3 nights in Chicago

Thank you SO much! Wish we had a week to explore all the fabulous dining. Just got a res at Alinea for tonight and we're super excited. Booked Blackbird - have you dined there? Couldn't get into Rick Bayless' places... will have to save them for next time. Is Spiaggia wonderful? Cafe Spiaggia??? Thanks!

3 nights in Chicago

We're heading to Chicago for three nights - Sun, Mon, Tues. Thought about going to Charlie Trotter's on Tuesday night but wanted ideas for Sunday and Monday. Spiaggia? Alinea? Any other ideas? Thanks!

Venice for 3 nights

Thank you!!! You have no idea how much I appreciate your comments. Definitely going to book Il Refolo and might try and squeeze in a late lunch at Fiaschterria the day we arrive. One more thought, are any of these restaurants by the water? Or is there somewhere you could recommend going to for a drink that is on the canal? Thanks so much for your fabulous feedback!

Venice for 3 nights

We're heading to Venice for 3 nights next week and I'd love some feedback on restaurant choices we have made.

Day 1
Dinner - Alle Testiere

Day 2
Lunch - was thinking Il Refolo for pizza?
Dinner - La Calandre in Padua

Day 3
Lunch - Al Covo (should we switch this to Fiaschterria Toscana?)
Dinner - Il Ridotto

Would love any advice as this is our first time in Venice. Thanks!
