It's my birthday tomorrow...
And I can't decide where to go...Thoughts? Suggestions? It's going to be a low key night (but excellent food) with a friend of mine. We were thinking somewhere like Blackbird or Sepia, but those menus aren't exciting me. Any other ideas? (Only rule is no Greek food; I just got back from Greece and I've had enough lamb and feta for a while.)
Of course, it's Chicago, so there are lots of possibilities. Good food and low key is a nice combination.
Spring ( www.springrestaurant.net ) and Violet Hour are a good idea.
North Pond, at the north end of Lincoln Park (the actual park itself), is always nice. www.northpondrestaurant.com
Sweets and Savories, at the west end of Lincoln Park (the neighborhood called Lincoln Park), has good food and is offbeat. www.sweetsandsavorieschicago.com
Lula, in Logan Square, is another place with good food and relatively low key atmosphere. www.lulacafe.com
