Lunch celebration for a 50-year young's birthday celebration!
My very best friend from grade school & I are celebrating our 50th birthdays on Wednesday. I'm surprising her by visiting the Shen Shen Health & Harmony Spa in Lincoln Park for a morning of relaxation & revigoration. Then off to lunch... but where?? We'd like something comfortable & laid-back, not pretentious or elegant, but unique. I thought of Butterfly Sushi & Thai because of it's great quality of sushi, ambiance, music, service and of course, BYOB! While we love Butterfly, we've been there recently and thought some fellow Chows could make a similar recommendation.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
I would go to Tepatulco. Geno Bahena has served some of the most innovative regional Mexican cuisine at his previous restaurants (Chilpancingo, Ixcapuzalco). He recently opened this place in Lincoln Park and it's open for lunch. I haven't been there yet, but if it's anywhere near as good as Chilpancingo and Ixcapuzalco, it will be the perfect place to celebrate the occasion.
