Post-Architectural Boat Tour Dinner

Suggestions needed for dinner after doing the fabulous architectural boat tour. Anything but deep dish pizza (sorry, Chicagoians!).

  1. How much you are looking to spend and other than no pizza anything you would be interested in?

    Shaw's is close by

    1. Purple Pig, A short stroll north on Michigan Ave. Try to go at off hours if you can, otherwise the wait is awful, but the food is certainly worth it. I have probably eaten about half of the items on the menu and would have eaten everything on the menu except that there are so many things I love that I simply *have* to order them again and again. For me the best time to go is late afternoon or very early evening. I love the way this place balances flavors and mixes textures and I am constantly stealing ideas from them for home cooking uses. I have never waited for dinner here though which could be a problem. I hate restaurants that won't take reservations so I was a bit late hitting this place but if you time it right it is just so good!
