Fodor's Chicago 2014
Anyone who does authentic Mexican in Chicago operates in the shadow of Frontera Grill's Rick Bayless—which makes it easier for those in the know to snag a table at Salpicón. Chef Priscila Satkoff grew up in Mexico City, and her renditions of mole poblano and grilled fish with salsa fresca have unforced flair. Wash 'em down with a belt of one of 100 tequilas or choose from the extensive selection of vintage wines. Once you try the Mexican-style Sunday brunch, with dishes like skirt steak and eggs, you'll have a hard time going back to eggs Benedict.

We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.
We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.
Any add-ons in the area?
Thanks. Read more
