HELP! All the GREAT high end restaurants...But which one!?!

Alinea - especially given your family's background in culinary arts. You'll still be blown away by technique. Service: you'll be treated like a rockstar.

looking for a great Thursday lunch

Definitely Blackbird. Michelin star restaurant and has lunch prix fix last time I checked. I went once and it was out of this world!

Chicago Steakhouse Recs this weekend

I COMPLETELY agree that David Burkes is the way to go. I love, love, love their ribeyes and their kobe beef sashmi served on a bed of himilayan rock salt is one of the most delicious things I've ever tasted.

I didn't like Gene and Georgetti's myself. I don't like my steak charred. and their steaks are wet-aged. I like mine dry for the intensity of flavor.

If you want to drop big buck, make a reservation and ask for the 79 day aged steak, if they have it.
