An oldie and a goodie - it's lasted on Randolph Street FOREVER which is reason enough to come in on a cold winter night for some comforting Italian food.
Le Colonial is one of the best restaurants in Chicago. Super fresh, tangy, spicy, sweet, wonderful, awesome. That's just the food. The atmosphere is lovely, class, first-rate. Love. This. Place.
If Spiaggia is good enough for the President of the United States of America, it's good enough for me.
Super touristy, but be a tourist in your own town and grab a cocktail at the top of the 'Cock. You won't regret it. (Although your wallet might.)
There's a reason Geja's is considered one of Chicago's most romantic restaurants: it's underground, super dark, brimming over with wine and you have to dip your succulent food in chocolate and cheese.
North Pond feels like a secret cottage in the middle of a magical forest with magical food and ambiance.
You'll feel extra romantic at this super romantic Italian restaurant after one of their stellar Negronis (or two).
What. A. Treat. Make a date take you for a special occasion or your husband on an anniversary. Or even a very cool (and expensive) girl's night out. And if it's in season, you CANNOT do without the dark chocolate covered bacon Manhattan.
The Gage's super classy French sister. Frou frou French cocktails & frou frou French food conveniently located across from Millennium Park.
Bavettes is the sexiest room in town and boasts kick-ass, simply prepared steaks next to elegant salads and raw options.
If you want to indulge in a $20 cocktail this is the place for it. Let's just call it alcohol art. It's fab. And not open for interpretation.
