Need advice on romantic post proposal restaurant
I was planning on proposing next sunday and afterwards heading to a nice romantic dinner. Problem is that we are both vegetarians and thus kinda limits out choices. Budget is midrange, it would be nice to stay under 60-80 a person. It would be awsome if it was close to michigan ave, right down town but does not have to be.
I looked at Geja's, Spiaggia, and the one on top of john hancock. I like the view of signature room but I am not sure after all the bad reviews of the horrible service.
Any suggestions, this would be a very special day and thus something just perfect would be awsome, at this point I am leaning between Geja's and Spiaggia.
For me, anything with really good food fits the romantic bill, but here are my suggestions:
Spiaggia Cafe (you'll find the prices more in line with your budget and the food just as good)
North Pond (in Lincoln Park -- the park itself-- close to, but not walking distance from Michigan Ave)
Sepia (also a short cab ride)
But for vegetarians, why not give Green Zebra a shot?. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere romantic and the service excellent. It's predominently, but not all-vegetarian. It, too is a cab ride away, but not all that far.

cite on lake point tower has a very romantic atmosphere and a stunning view. it's much more spacious than the signature room, and the food is better. but i don't think they have very many choices for vegetarians. check out their menu online and see if your soon-to-be fiance would like the few veggie choices they have. if she would, then i think it''ll be the perfect place for you to propose! call ahead and tell them about the special occasion and request a booth seat for optimal ambiance.

Funny you should mention Geja's. My husband and I drove past it this morning and remarked at how it's still there doing fondue (I think they're still doing fondue) after 40 years. It was pretty trendy way back when, but it's nothing special now. I don't know who makes it out to be something these days. It did survive all this time, anyway.
I dont know why but a lot of people said that Geja's was one of the best romantic spots, and it came up on a lot of the foodie lists aswell.
Cite, seemed pretty welcoming, but I am just afraid of an outrageous bill at the end of the day. As a medical student, unfortunately it matters a lot. But I mean this only happens once, so I mean if I can get it done for close to or under 60 a head, it would be perfect. Also we dont drink, so the wine cost maybe less :)
Call Cite and ask about the price range. My guess is that after you add in parking, tax and tip, you'll be past your price limit. On this most special of evenings, why worry about money? Go someplace less expensive and be worry free. Believe me, you'll barely remember the restaurant or food. You'll be to busy making plans and staring into each others eyes to remember the ambience of the restaurant or anything else. Congrats and best wishes!
