Glow: Fresh Grill & Wine Bar at Don Mills

Tried it last night. The calamari was bitter from the char and rubbery. I ordered the sliders. What I received was 3 baked meatballs - lamb, beef, and turkey, with extremely mushy interiors, and surprisingly tasteless. At first I thought they were raw in the middle, but they were cooked through...dry on the outside, mushy on the inside. My husband's Mediterranean burger was two flattened beef meatballs with the same texture, and 3 or 4 dry-as-dust potato wedges. Rose was there...not looking too happy...maybe she ordered the same things we did.....

Bistro Campagne - 2 x 15 minute cab ride - worth it?

Staying in Mag Mile area...I've made dinner reservations at Bistro Campagne, but now realize it is at least a 15 minute cab ride to and from. Is it worth the time and cost of the ride? If it is, then we'll give it a try. Or, do you have a suggestion for another really good, comfortable French bistro closer to the Mile?

Classic Hot Dog near Magnificent Mile

The news that Hot Doug's is closed is definitely useful, since we'll be in Chicago this weekend. What about Gold Coast Dogs?

Classic Hot Dog near Magnificent Mile

Spending a long weekend at Magnificent Mile. Want to try a classic Chicago hot dog. Don't really want to spend precious time traveling to or waiting in line at Hot Doug's...unless I'm mistaken about the distance and waiting time. Any other suggestions?
