Best restaurants in Chicago to give an engagement ring

Sorry guys. Most of your messages went into spam, so I hadn't read them. I'll start doing it now. Seems there are a lot of different opinions. Tatami Rooms in L2O, North Pond, and Everest look like the strongest ones, although Charlie Trotter's last days sound interesting too...

Thanks everybody!

I think I'll have to choose among Everest, Blackbird (anybody been there?) or North Pond. This will be untill August, but of course I'll let you know how it goes.
Thanks a lot everyone!

I'll be at The Silversmith Hotel & Suites. I'll be there two nights, one probably in Girl and the Goat or Common Table, the other one is the one concerning this question. I thought of Alinea or Le Colonial, but probably there are better options. Main thing is great food, wine and beer menus, but not so important which kind of food. Romantic place, with private table, no matter if high end or something nice but less fancy. Price is no problem. Close to hotel would be best, but we can take a taxi. As you see, it's quite flexible, as soon as food is great. Maybe your top 5 list would help, and a special suggestion for the private/romantic table.

Hello

I'm visiting Chicago in August and there's a chance I'll use that time to engage with my girlfriend. I'm looking for a great restaurant (food, wine, beer) with a space that can work for a special table.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

French macarons for dummies

I think the thing here is that this is not the recipe for macarons (filled) but for almond/coconut macaroons (common confusion).

Aren't macarons supposed to have cream/ganache in the middle?
