I am a chef in NYC. It is my wifes 30th birthday and we are headed to chicago. The only dinner I have planned is Charlie Trotters and the dessert tasting at TRU. I would love foodie suggestions...the only other restaurant I have heard as a must try so far is NAHA.
Tavern at the HIghlands Country Club! It has a great beer list of all NY Breweries, good food and it is relatively quiet. There is dining outside on the golf course but it is not your typical Country Club restaurant!
