HELP! Chicago this weekend - shops/restaurants?

Jump to last reply

Hi there - Taking hubby to Chicago this weekend for a big birthday. We've been before, but I've never asked experts here about restaurants, etc. I got a deal on Priceline, so we're at the the Hilton Suites off Mich on Delaware. It's farther from the metro than I'm used to and farther north than we usually stay (not that much, but a bit). So - I'd like to find some interesting home decor/design shops that are in the area or reasonably reached by metro. Only have 2 nights. I'm interested in unique textiles, lighting, etc. But would like to find locally owned places, not Crate & Barrel....

Then I'd like recommendations on eateries. Husband is Italian, so would like to find a nice place for Sat. night, but please, not too stuffy. We'll be wearing jeans but nice tops... :-)

I've eaten at Rose Angelis in the past and liked it. Is it still good? Any ideas would be most appreciated. Italian for one night and ??? for the other? We tend to like healthier foods, funkier places... I know, it's all relative. Lay it on me. And thanks!
