Two places to add to this list of great restaurant. The first one is the famous Frontera Grill. I went there yesterday for a Margarita and some topes. The ambiance is great and the topes/margarita combo was awesome. This is one great restaurant for sure.
The other restaurant that is definitely worth mentioning is Vong’s Thai Kitchen. I had a very delicious dinner there. This is not a very hard core Thai, many European influences in the cooking. This type of fusion food works very well with our wines, so it was a memorable event. The dinner was organized in conjunction with Sam’s, the famous Chicago wine retailer.
