chicago: food like no other


My recent visit to hometown Chicago, I was able to over indulge on all my favorite eats!  Didn't quite have the time to hit all my favorite hot spots, but I did a pretty darn good job adding the calories:) Was it worth it? Absolutely...

Chicago's got everything when it comes to food...and I must warn you, you may leave hungry after viewing this gallery!



Pizza @ Spacca Napoli                           Pork Bahn Mi @ Ba Le                                Italian Beef @ Portillos

Restaurant week in Chicago: Lunch @ the Peninsula hotel at 'The Lobby' (below)

For $22, I enjoyed a 3 course meal with buffet appetizers, a choice of main, and unlimited selection of desserts!

Probably the best deal for restaurant week!!!






Restaurant week: Dinner @ Mercat a la Planxa (below)

3 course meal included 8 tapas! Serrano ham and fig salad to the left

Chocolate croquettes with banana marshmallow, rosemary caramel & arbequina olive oil to the right






Violet hour...my favorite lounge/bar in Chicago. My friend/bartender Michael wasn't there when I stopped by, but I was still able to order my drink-'Part and Parcel' even though it's off the menu!
