Aigre Doux or one sixtyblue?
we'll be in Chicago this coming weekend and have made reservations at both Aigre Doux and one sixtyblue for Friday night. I'm trying to decide between the two and thought I'd ask for some advice. I've already searched the boards on what people have to say and most people are pretty positive about the food and their experiences at both restos, so I'm having a hard time making a decision.
To give you a frame of reference, we're from NYC, but I used to live in Chi-town and one of my favorite places is Blackbird. We'll be eating at Alinea on Saturday night so for Friday we want something a bit more low key, but still fantastic food and atmosphere. We'll be a party of three.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice!
Those three (including Blackbird) are my three favorite "casual fine dining" restaurants in the city, with fantastic food (one "wow dish" after another) and a wonderful experience in every way. I realize this doesn't help you make a decision, but they're just all terrific IMHO. Don't agonize too much over a decision with no bad choices; just pick either one and enjoy it!
