Near Hotel 71

We are staying at Hotel 71 near the river in a few weeks. Looking for recs nearby for a group of 20 to celebrate my son's engagement.

We'd like something similar to Hopleaf or Fork for unique gastro pub choices and a good variety of craft beers.

Large group coming in June

We are going to be staying downtown, so probably the north side - wouldn't you agree?

Large group coming in June

We are going to be in Chicago June 16-18 to celebrate my son's engagement. There are about 24 of us looking for a place to have dinner on Saturday night.
We would like to find a restaurant with a private room so we can have an intimate atmosphere. We are looking for something casual but interesting.
Something like Hopleaf would be great but we are unsure if they can accommodate a group our size.
Any suggestions?

Restaurant near St Louis airport

Thanks for the help. We had zeroed in on Lombardo's but they are closed on Sundays.

Restaurant near St Louis airport

Sorry, we are looking for a rec for dinner Sunday night. We will have cars but we prefer a restaurant near the airport so we don't have too far to drive after dinner and drinks.

Restaurant near St Louis airport

Four couples driving into St Louis next Sunday afternoon to sleep overnight and fly out bright and early Monday morning. We are going to stay at a hotel with Park and Fly near the airport. Looking for a rec on a restaurant not too far away.

Need recs for cocktails near the Apollo Theater

My wife and I are in town this weekend celebrating our 30th. Looking for an upscale eclectic place to have a cocktail and perhaps a small bite before seeing MDQ @ 8:00PM Friday night.

Did we choose wisely?

Six of us are in SF next week for Saturday night and all day Sunday after three days in wine country. We have picked Fish & Farm for dinner Saturday night, Perry's Embarcadero (were looking for good brunch with a view) for Sunday brunch and Pesce's for dinner. Did we choose wisely?

Saturday on the Hill in St Louis

My wife, my son, his fiancee and myself are in St Louis Saturday and Sunday for Cards' games. My son and his fiancee have never been to "the Hill" so we thought we would take them on Saturday night.

My wife and I have been a few times before, I believe Cuneto's and Zia's for sure, but not sure about the other times. It's been a few years.

Any rec's on where we should go?

Pre and Post Spamalot

In town this weekend for the marathon with my wife, son and fiancee. Going to see Spamalot Friday night.

Would appreciate a good rec for some drinks and something light before the show and the same afterwards. Suggestions within walking distance of the Shubert would be ideal.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Need yea or nay on my choices

Thanks for your rec's.

What would be your suggestions for lunch if we want to skip the fine dining one day and just experience one of Chicago's unique restaurants? We are looking for a lot to eat, since we are going out in the evening. Just some place where we could have an appetizer or share and entree and have a beer or a glass of wine.

Any other lunch recs similar to Custom House?

Need yea or nay on my choices

Will we have any trouble "just showing up" at either NoMI or the Signature Room or will there be a wait?

Any recs on what to have at either CT's or Spiaggia's?

Also, for lunch, we will be near McCormick Place at lunch time. Just looking for something with some atmosphere and/or a view and some eclectic food and perhaps a nice wine list.

We do have reservations at both places.

Any recommendations on what to have at either CT's or Spiaggia's?

Will be in town with my wife for 2 nights (Sunday & Monday). We are staying near McCormick Place however we have a car.
I have perused the chow board and made the following choices for dinner.
(1) Spiaggia on Sunday night.
(2) Charlie Trotter's on Monday night.
I am also thinking about stopping by NoMi before dinner to experience their lounge and/or wine bar, perhaps on Sunday.
How does this all sound?
Also, I would like a place to have a light lunch either day or both days.
Thanks in advance for your help.
