Pre-NATO Weekend Help for Cdn. Visitors

Hi! I'm a fellow Albertan - but an expat, lived in NYC for 10 yrs and now Chicago. i would absolutely recommend Lou's over Uno's. The location in River North on N. Wells is pretty good, normally 30 min wait. Re: Aviary, make reservations, by email! I would add Slurping Turtle to your asian options- it's in the same area, lots of tapas type sharing dishes and pretty reasonable considering its Takashi. Xoco is great...be prepared to wait awhile to be seated...as with Frontera. Def. go to the Publican! Another good option near your hotel is Tavernita!

Agree w. the Gage rec...also Bar Toma on Mich Ave is good!

Safe travels!

Good Delivery options...River North?

Hi! I moved from NYC to River North a few months ago...while there are an abundance of great places around me to eat at, i'm struggling to find good delivery! We have the pizza figured out- Lou's, but are looking for the following DELIVERY suggestions:
-Chinese
-Thai
-Indian

and anything else you think is fantastic?

TIA

Alfama Tonight...Restaurant Week

Hey NYC Foodie! Sounds good-I love pasteis de natas and caldo verde! I have been meaning to try the vinho verde which is very popular in Portugal. Thanks for the reminder, will definitely make sure we try it tonight :=)

Did anyone in your party try the bacalhau? If so, did they prefer that to the mixed seafood?

I called Hearth a couple of days ago, they had an 11pm slot. Guess I might have to plan for a few days after Valentines day :(

Nice Dinner...

I am trying to pick a restaurant for Valentine's Day and there are so many choices! My bf and I love Peasant and Union Square Cafe--and I would love suggestions from anyone who also counts these places among their favorites!
