Fun eats in Chicago

Jump to last reply

Greetings! I will be traveling to Chicago in March with my husband and two boys (ages 12 and 8) to see family. We have been there before, but it's been a few years, and I'm hoping for some recommendations for fun/interesting places to eat.

I'm not looking for anything of the Rainforest Cafe variety - rather, places that are interesting and that would be enjoyable for the whole family. (For instance, there used to be a wine bar-ish sort of place that had milk flights - chocolate, vanilla, strawberry - on their menu.) Despite picky starts, my kids have become adventurous eaters, so ethnic food isn't a problem.

We will be staying near the Mag Mile and will be relying on public transportation and cabs to get around, so traveling too, too far into the suburbs probably isn't a great option, but we'd make the trek for something really unique.

And, of course, I'll always take suggestions for interesting shops or other destinations that would be appealing to us and to our boys.

Many thanks!
