Grab your highest heels, put on your finest duds and head to one of these hotspots where your stylish fashion choices won't go to waste.
Pops for Champagne is the country's most esteemed Champagne bar w none of the stuffiness. 200 wines/bubbles on the menu pop my cork any day.
Perched in the Park Hyatt Hotel on the 7th floor w breathtaking views of Michigan Ave, it's hard not to love this fancypants "casual dining" resto even if a spicy tuna roll is $21.
Prepare to have your mind blown; a food blown mind like no other.
Riccardo Trattoria is probably my absolute favorite restaurant in Chicago. The pasta, truffles, mozzarella and squash blossoms are unrivaled. You will NEVER have a meal that is less than spectacular w Riccardo in the kitchen.
Although it's somewhat Americanized French food, if yr looking to eat your slightly above average steak & frites in style, this is yr spot.
Forget stodgy and stuffy, the Four Seasons is officially a hotspot for the trendsetting crowd. Chef Kevin Hickey is the coolest Four Seasons chef in - uh - the whole world.
Definitely go to RPM 4 the rockstar cocktail list especially the Lower Door, but don't go 4 the service. Even Mama DePandi would disapprove.
Chef Brothers Michael and Patrick have singlehandedly created the best new restaurant concept in Chicago. Fun, playful and downright delicious food and drinks.
Dude, this is hands down the coolest place to hit River North or Chicago in forever. Live music, a full menu & a book of cocktails. Thank u!
