Recently, I made a weekend trip to Chicago for the sole purpose of eating. The trip came about when we made a reservation for Alinea, voted #6 Best Restaurant in the World and Best Restaurant in North America in the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards. There was no sightseeing, no architectural cruise on the river, no scenic view from the John Hancock Observatory or no walk along Navy Pier. Just lots of food.
The river looks green even when its not St. Paddy's Day.
There will be pizza, and meals at Blackbird and Publican.
But most importantly, there will be an epic 22 course meal at Alinea.
