You could also call this post Girls Weekend Takes Chicago (The FOOD part). My two favorite things about this city are the architecture and millions of restaurants to chose from. I felt like half the battle of this weekend was where to eat and then what to get.
The options are endless…
Here are some of the choices we made.
The Hampton Social 353 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 60654
While I only had a slice of margherita pizza (I met up for lunch at Portillos, a Chicago staple) the atmosphere and presentation of food at this location are so dang pretty. We had such a great time grabbing drinks and chatting, while feeling much like we we were somewhere coastal.
Mahalo 1501 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
The fried rice…. The fried rice…Get it! We may have visited for brunch but the fried rice stole the show, along side the bartender who made some fab tropical beverages and snapped some good swing photos.
Lou Malnati’s various locations
Also highly recommended, but I was apparently too busy eating to take pictures:
Moe’s Cantina (River North) 155 W Kinzie St, Chicago, IL 60654- Get it all! This was my second time visiting Moe’s and it is becoming a favorite! The food is unreal and the drinks authentic. Grab dinner here and head on over to Old Crow Smokehouse for some refreshments and live country music!
Brunch 644 N. Orleans St. Chicago, Il 60654- LOOK AT THE MENU!! Let’s just say if I lived in Chicago, I would be here daily.
Broken English (Old Town) 1400 N. Wells St. Chicago, Il 60610 Bottomless Mimosas + Burrito Mexicano + the Burrito Ranchero = the happiest you will ever be.I may be forgetting some places but eh, time to workout…
