  • Au Cheval – A french diner. The buyer here is spectacular.
  • Aviary – Get a reservation online to avoid the lines. The most exquisite presentation & creations in the cocktail world. [R&H review
  • Avec – Communal tables, plates for sharing, fabulous wine. It has been a staple & a fave for 10+ years. Don’t miss out. Go early if there are more than 2 of you to get a table [R&H review
  • Blackbird – A little more formal, delicious fish dishes.
  • Girl & the Goat – Huge space, loads of tables,  but it is popular so book ahead of time. Great menu small plates [R&H review]
  • Glazed & Infused – Holy load of delicious handcrafted donuts. So sugary good, several locations across the city.
  • J.P. Graziano Italian deli with the best italian subs in town.
  • Maudes Liquor Bar – French bistro with a focus on seafood, great room & amazing cocktails. Love the tartare [R&H review]
  • Moto innovative, fun but fancy meal, I have always had a good time.
  • Next – The menu changes 4 times a year. Buy a ticket, it is $$$ but worth it, get the wine parings, turn up, enjoy the show [R&H review]
  • Publican – Great pub food, that has a wicked brunch on the weekends, Good for all meals. [R&H review
  • Publican Quality Meatsis good for a lunch spot and for taking goodies with you for later [R&H review]
  • RM Champagne – Hidden down an alley, great outdoor space in the summer. Good for drinks & a nibble.
  • Sepia – Delightful dinner stop, live this room and of course the food. Seasonal menu focused on classic dishes.
  • Sushi Dokku – Great sushi spot. Excellent Sake selection. Sit at the counter & order the omakase option.
  • Wishbone – Across from the old Oprah Studios, this is ‘southern reconstruction’ food. Fun breakfast spot.

    I am a tourist and l visit in many countries for my travel interest. Travelling is a big source to give knowledge about the world. It gives to see the beauty of God and beautiful places around the world. Last year I choice tours to Chicago to enjoy the summer holidays. It is the best tour in my life. It has many beautiful destinations for visiting. I have a lot of fun in Chicago. If you plan to enjoy the summer holidays so I suggest to all of you must visit in this city.

    Chicago offers a wide range of tourist attractions. It’s beautiful winter months deliver nothing short of magical experiences. A delightful, snow filled wonderland, the city buzzes with energy both downtown and in the vibrant neighborhoods. “Navy Pier” is a best place to see there. Built in 1916, the 1,000 meter long pier juts out of Lake Michigan and features a Ferris wheel, carousel and an IMAX theater.
