  1. Well, it depends how far you want to travel. Just north of the Mag mile in Lincoln Park (10 minute cab ride) is Northpond. Which would be ideal for a wedding anniversary.


    Closer to where you are staying is Crofton on Wells, Pane Caldo or Everest which are also all very good places for a special celebration.

    1. We haven't been for awhile, but a couple of years ago we had an excellent anniversary dinner at Les Nomades--traditional French haute cuisine, and in easy walking distance of the Wyndham. Here's their website:


      1. Some other decent French restaurants nearby:

        Bistro 110 - casual, packed with Michigan avenue tired shoppers
        Brasserie Jo - decent
        Brasserie Rulhman - new, beautiful room.

        With that said, I'd go for Les Nomades, especially for such an important meal.
