My friend Ginger and I are headed to Chicago soon for a fun weekend trip filled with sightseeing, shopping, and adventures. Neither of us have ever been to the city, so we’re super excited. We’re especially looking forward to discovering some new and delicious Chicago restaurants…but when I started to think specifics, I quickly got overwhelmed!
So, I figured I would ask the experts: what spots do you recommend?
We’ve got reservations at Girl and the Goat (eek! should we try the goat empanadas?), and I’ve been eying the Publican…but I’d love some advice from those of you “in the know.” Where should we go? And what should we order once we get there? We’re adventurous eaters, and we love great cocktails as well. We’re willing to go out of our way for a great meal.
And speaking of finding great meals, have you checked out the Boarding Area blog Fly and Dine lately? Jason is an amazing resource (in fact, I’m hoping he has some Chicago restaurant tips for me)! His blog is a blend of the innovative (in-flight cocktail hacks, for example), and the practical (the LAX In N’ Out Burger trick), with a sprinkle of celebrity dish (pun intended) on the side.
Psst: today is an especially good day to check out Fly and Dine, because he’s running a $50 giveaway to The Counter…and he’s featuring an interview of me. 😉
Here’s a photo of some Counter choices…and now I’m hungry. Thanks, Jason!
