Business Dinner Budget Dropped - Help Needed
- Chicago Wine Geek Jan 23, 2012 01:07 PM
So I've got a business dinner for 4 people this Thursday and had booked David Burke's. My budget just got chopped so high end beef is out of the question. Can someone recommend something awesome that I can do in the $30/person range that would be within a $10 cab ride of the Swisshotel? Any cuisine will work, just looking for something really good.
Thanks in advance hounds.

My meals at Atwood have always run much higher ... tips for keeping it under $30?
We've fallen in love with La Madia for their special entrees - see if you can book the table in the side room with the wine cellar and it would feel quite upscale. Order the chianti braised short ribs with vegetable risotto for a super good meal.
