Europe’s good for city trips in a weekend, but North America’s not so bad either: Chicago was a treat! Not expecting too much, a one-hour flight brought us to the ‘Windy City’. The Bean, the Art Institute of Chicago, eating pancakes, shopping at the Magnificent Mile (leopard Uggs for mini-me, couldn’t resist)… I’m in love with Chicago!
Twin Anchors (twinanchorsribs.com) – a tip from friends: best ribs in town! One of Chicago’s oldest restaurants, and Frank Sinatra’s favourite.
Le Colonial (lecolonialchicago.com) – recommended by several friends, and now recommended by me as well! French-Vietnamese: yammy!!
Wildberry Pancakes and Café (wildberrycafe.com) – don’t go there. I’m still nauseous of the intensely sweet pancakes. Lovely. Perfect combination with one of their ‘low fat’ smoothies
Terzo Piano (terzopianochicago.com) – walking around in a museum makes one hungry… Having lunch in the Art Institute is a good idea! Modern restaurant in the Modern Wing of the Institute.
