Serious Eats: Talk
Need Chicago dining help
Born and raised in the windy city and go back often. Have family members flying in from all over (a total of 8) on Friday October 4 and we are all staying in the River North neighborhood. Since everyone is coming in at different times from different airports it's impossible to make a dinner reservation. Any suggestions for casual yet creative food (no tapas or pizza please) in our neck of the woods? We prefer a more quiet atmosphere with good wine and with no reservations required.
