    Chicago Dining Recommendations

    I'm looking for suggestions for some good, interesting, unusual, creative or exotic restaurants to try on an upcoming trip to Chicago. We just returned from a wonderful family trip to Washington DC that featured some really good food, things we can't readily find at home even by making the long drive into the city, and it got me thinking that I should start looking for a few good recommendations for our next trip! Restaurants need to be family friendly in the sense that children are welcome, but a "standard" kids menu isn't a requirement because my children enjoy a wide variety of foods. We're particularly fans of most Asian cooking styles as well as seafood and BBQ.

    For a kick...go to the "Wiener's Circle" for a hot dog and an experience. (NOT for the kids) Steak is great there so I would go for some of the mom and pop's and smaller steak houses. Can't help with the Asian or seafood...but BBQ is also big there. My trick...ask the locals, they will give you the best and most up to date recommendations and reviews.

    For many Chicagoans, going out to breakfast or brunch is an important part of our daily or weekend routines. These restaurants rank among the best places for hearty starts in the Windy City.
    Portillo's Hot Dogs, is one of the good chicago dining restuarent that i would recommend you to visit.

    Be ready to be amazed, this is hands down the best french restaurant I have ever been to. A host greets you as soon as you enter and escorts you to your table, where chilled champagne is served as you settle in. My date and I both did the Prix- fix menu and couldn't have been happier we also had some amazing wine and port. All the dishes were amazing, some notable ones were the squash soup, braised short rib, and for dessert the warm chocolate tarte. Many people come for special occasions as it is pricey but well worth it for unforgettable french experience.

    Perennial Virant is one the Top 5 restaurants in the Chicago Virantís farmhouse-chic standout across from Lincoln Park earned its share of attention last summer and then eased into the kind of consistency that eludes so many young restaurants

    Sunda is a nice restaurant and is perfect for people who enjoys asian food Yoshi's cafe is also a good place if you enjoy food of the highest quality for a reasonable price. This place started as a really pricey place, but prices have lowered and the atmosphere there is quite relaxed. They specialize in a french-asian fusion, so if you are into that I really recommend this place.

    Thank you all for the great suggestions!

    Wow, the menu at Yoshi's Cafe looks amazing. Just the sort of thing we enjoy when we travel! That one is definitely going in my notes.

    Hot dogs... Eh, you may have hit on the one and only thing that I don't eat, so I'll probably give those a pass.

    Perennial Virant looks good too. We didn't have time to make it to the restaurant that was on my DC list that had a similar concept (seasonal, local, fresh) but I love the idea.

    When I met up with some friends in Chicago we went to Frontera; a restaurant owned by the famous chef, Rick Bayless. My friends were far more impressed than I was; however, I suppose that was more because, I had met up with them in Chicago, from Mexico. Seeing as, I am used to the kinds of foods served there, it wasn't anything spectacular.

    However, if you're interested in authentic Mexican, I'd consider checking it out.

    I too, would pass on hotdogs

    For me when visiting Chicago I try to incorporate a great view with my dinner because Chicago has some awesome dining places with spectacular views. Even the mall has a great food court on the 7th floor of Macy's.

    My favorite is The Gage across from the Millennium Park. My only suggestion is definitely get a seat at the bar for dinner so you can overlook the park while dining.

    MileNorth Hotel is a most famous hotel of Chicago where I stay there for four days. I enjoyed there delicious food and drinks. It is a best place to enjoy amazing food. The numbers of visitors go there and had great time there. So I will suggest you should go there once. I hope you will have good time there.

    I would personally go for tacos in this scene because that surely has a lot to offer and in the same way we can grow with the appeal that it gives and that is always very supportive for the terms it helps us with new york niagara falls tour gives the best meal choices though.
