  1. I admit I am partial to Bonsoiree, after all they catered my wedding and I had my rehearsal dinner there. The dining experience is fantastic there, given how intimate it is, and it is BYOB which is a huge bonus with a really nice meal.

    I had a good meal at Table 52, but not memorable enough to return, especially after they crammed three of us into a two top against the wall with two of us on the bench side of a small table when I had a reservation WELL in advance. The food there was good, but if you want something slightly more unique and romantic, I would go with Bonsoiree.

    1. May i ask why these 2 are musts? Understand that it is highly subjective, but there's tons of places in Chicago. My own opinion, Bonsoiree is exceptional. Table 52 is good. Perhaps a tad pricey for 'confort' food.

      1. Bonsoiree, hands down.

        1. Yep, Bonsoiree! I've just booked my fourth visit in six months. I know there are others places, but Bonsoiree just keeps delivering. The maitre'd, Ryan, is wonderful!!
