Wonderful restaurant west of the Hudson River
We had dinner at Shallots, in Skokie a few weeks ago. I must say that without a doubt, it was the finest dining experience I'd ever had in any restaurant, kosher or not. The bill was about what I'd expected for a four star restaurant, but worth every penny.
Also, if you're in the area, Ken's Diner on Dempster has delicious kosher Italian Beef.
