Romantic Restaurants in Chicago
Hi, I'll be in chicago in two weekends, and am not very familiar with the city. But i am looking for a restaurant that is Very Very romantic, something that would really leave a memory, possibly with slow dancing? Its our 1 year anniversary and i want to do it right. Cost isnt really an issue, i'm expecting to pay around 150-200 per person. If you have any suggestions that would be great!
I think the most romantic restaurant in Chicago is Everest. It is one of our very finest restaurants, specializing in contemporary French/Alsatian food. The food is absolutely superb, and the service is the finest I have experienced in any restaurant anywhere. The view is thrilling; it's on the 40th Floor of the Midwest Stock Exchange Building, with the entire city spread out below. No dancing, though, AFAIK. www.everestrestaurant.com
Another very romantic restaurant is North Pond. North Pond has a unique setting in the middle of Lincoln Park (the park itself, not just the surrounding neighborhood of the same name). It faces its namesake pond - the building formerly served as the warming shelter for ice skaters in winter - and the city skyline rises above the opposite shore. The view from the outer dining room, with its full-length windows/doors, is magnificent (but I've enjoyed it even in the inner dining room, with the open kitchen along one wall). The contemporary American cuisine from James Beard-nominated Chef Bruce Sherman is excellent. Again, no dancing, sorry. www.northpondrestaurant.com
