romantic meal THIS THURSDAY!
Hello fellow foodies,
I am heading to Chicago for one night only and want to enjoy a romantic meal with my husband. Of course we want great food, a view would be ideal. I have reservations at North Pond. It looks a little to swanky. We really want a great view...and great food. Another option is a great place for a drink and some heavy appetizers? We are staying downtown, so close to Water Tower is great. We don't mind noise/music for drinks...
Stick with North Pond! It has a great view and great food, and I don't know what you mean by "too swanky" (it's not jacket-and-tie, if that's what you mean - business casual is just fine).
Before you go to dinner at North Pond, go to the Signature Room at the top of the John Hancock Center for a drink.
Depending on timing, try to get to the rooftop lounge at the Trump Hotel by 9:30. You'll be rewarded with a perfect view of the Navy Pier fireworks and a wonderful view of the city.
