Visiting Chicago!

Ken and I are heading to Chicago this weekend to my friend’s wedding! We’re planning to eat at the following restaurants:

1. Portillo’s – cake shake and and Italian beef sandwich
2. Potbellys – as soon as we land! Tuna sandwich with extra peppers on a whole wheat bun!
3. Oven Grinders – pizza pot pie + meeting Ken’s friends
4. Phoenix or Ken Kee – dim sum + bubble tea + Ken meeting my best friends
5. Wedding food (steak, please!)
6. Pequod’s – ideally we’d make a visit and buy pizzas to bring back, but I don’t think that’s going to happen

We’re going to watch the Bears/Packers game on Sunday, stay at Ken’s sister’s place, and spend time with his niece and nephew, too!

Originally we were going to L2O but there just wasn’t enough time for another Michelin restaurant…meaning we’ll have to return to Chicago sometime this year to dine at the restaurant. I’m not completely sold on Ken Kee/Phoenix (those were just my favorites when I used to live in Illinois) – I was also thinking of visiting Jam or The Girl and the Goat. Suggestions?

Hi Grace, it’s Chicago Grace! I recommend visiting Jam or Bongo Room for brunch. Good luck meeting Ken’s friends!

other brunch options: birchwood kitchen and seasons restaurant. both might be better than dim sum

You gotta do Orange! They have a new restaurant in River North (738 N. Clark St) that’s super-easy to get to! That, Goose Island, and Heaven on Seven make a perfect breakfast-lunch-dinner for me.

But who knows what’s, err., Next?
