  1. Daniel - FWIW A friend just went to the opening of Porto - https://www.portochicago.com/ and spoke highly of it. Au Cheval is still great for a burger as is Kuma's Korner. Andy's Thai Kitchen under the El on Wellington is worth a visit and is BYO. And sitting at one of the bars at Proxi is great if you are a solo diner.
  2. Hopefully I am not too late. Can't really say there is anything new to recommend in Boulder. We have had several misses at Arcana. Frasca has new chefs, the team of Eduardo Valle Lobo and Kelly Jeun and they have really invigorated the menu. We always love Basta and Oak -- Oak is right off of Pearl Street but Basta is further out in more of a strip mall setting, but don't let that fool you. Kelly Whitaker serves up amazing wood-fired pizzas, order ahead lasagna, and amazing short rib and roast chicken. The chicken liver terrine is one of the best. Top Chef winner, Hosea Rosenberg has two res
  3. Sorry I was too late for your visit!
  4. Also in the West Loop for cocktails, CK Distillery and Maude's.
  5. We just returned. Fine cocktails at Kumiko. Do not bother with the omakase and food pairings in the basement restaurant - Kikko. Acadia, Oriole, the Bellemore if you have time, inclination, can get reservations for fine dining. Varied menu, great cocktails, first come, first served at Proxi -- try the hamachi collar and their riff on elote -- elote fritters -- you can thank me later. Feeling like venturing further afield, go to El Ideas in the Pilsen area. And if you are a carnivore, go on a burger crawl in the West Loop and compare Au Cheval with Kuma's Corner, but the latter only if you ca
  6. "Dinner at Dishooms with cousins" -- are said cousins going to wait in line at whichever of the Dishooms you choose for hours on end in order to secure a table?
  7. FWIW, I dined at Clove Club solo and had a great experience. Bartenders quite lovely and because I was on the early side, they gave me a tour of the dining room and kitchen and I chatted with the chef for a while about his influences.
  8. Nathan- We will be there from July 28-August 7, any overlap? We have reservations at Onyx (which closes for August) and Borkhanya Wine Kitchen. Other than that I have various lists that I have pulled together (lots of hipster coffee shops I'm told) and would be happy to share if you want to message me.
  9. Another vote for Publican. Or Green River, but then you have to get more alcohol.
  10. At Heathrow after dropping my daughter at LSE. Amazing meal at Restaurant Story. Masterful drink pairings by a great somm team. To share would be to spoil many of the surprises that the team put together to go with the story of the meal. More to come when I am back.
  11. Huckleberry Roasters is local and very good, but they are over in the Five Points neighborhood, as is Crema which sources their beans from several different roasters. There is an Amante Coffee that is local and very good. They just opened on 17th near Wazee. I haven't been to Little Owl but it is probably the closest to the convention center, so if you check it out, report back!
  12. Mongo- Don't do it. You are going to be very disappointed.
  13. A short walk from the Convention Center, you have Euclid Hall with, MORE beer, sausage pairings, chicken and waffles and the like. Osterio Marco, on Larimer, for roast chicken, wood fired pizzas, burrata with leeks. I do think they do takeout. The 16th street free people mover really opens up your access to the entire downtown area. You can take it right down to the newly refurbished Union Station. Beautifully re-done and worth a visit. There, you will find Zoe Ma Ma, an offshoot of the one in Boulder, hand pulled noodles, excellent dumplings. Try the Lion Head or Braised Beef. Very good fo
  14. http://www.zumstammtisch.com/menus.html#menu-party-menu Uhm. This is weird. They actually have a funereal luncheon menu!
  15. Wow! You guys are great. This will get me well on my way to finding something. I was also thinking, maybe a good diner might be nearby . . Thanks for all the suggestions.
