report..a short one

I was in myself for 2 days one nite.

My trip was fabulous and I certainly enjoyed reading
everyones post - regarding "where to eat".

Here is my "short report":
W Hotel - was uber kewl. The bar was great, the room was
great, the atmosphere was great complaints.
Frontera Grill - was amazing...the food, service, atmosphere, presentation etc etc.
Intelligentzia Coffee - fantastic
fox and obel - (gourmet food store) - a great "find" seeing as I needed lunch before my boat tour departed.

Chicago is one great city!!

  1. Thanks for the compliments. Glad you had a good time.

    Fox and Obel really is a great place. A little pricey for all my shopping, but every time I go in I find a few new things to try out. We're always happy to see someone break out of the Starbucks cult and try something local. And you can't really go wrong at Frontera, as long as you can get a seat.

    Let us know what you like next time you're in town and I'm sure you'll get lots of advice.
