Cozy Noodles and Rice:
OMG get the crab rangoons. This place is so cute & literally "cozy". Super cool decor as well! http://www.cozychicago.com/home/index.asp
AMAZING Chicago deep dish pizza and was quite thrilled to find out their thin crust is just as amazing. A little old Italian lady is back there slinging all the pizza's, made-to-order by the way. DELISH!
As seen on the Food Network and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. This place is must go. Extremely authentic and tastes exactly how it's supposed to: Costa Rican. GREAT food and worth the wait!
This was a personal favorite. I am a huge brunch fan. First off, if there's a wait, they send you to the waiting area where they have board games you can play while you have yourself a drink. They have an actual Bloody Mary menu and all sorts of craft beers on tap. The food, unbelievable. Each meal comes with a small but loaded fresh fruit cup and the food comes out quick. Hashbrowns are perfectly cooked (I'm a foodie). Try the Crab-Cake Benedict. WHOA! Plus, we had an awesome server named Janada, so I think that made the experience even better! Ask for her.
We of course got our tourist on! We visited the Bean, The Willis Tower "Sky Deck" and something a lot of people don't know about, The Bahai House of Worship (one of seven in the WORLD!)
I highly suggest visiting all three! Also, don't forget to get yourself a Chicago style hot dog, preferably from Wrigleyville, such a cool area!
There were a few things we didn't get to do, but we shall return to the clean and beautiful city of Chicago again, preferably in the summer when its much warmer :)
The Bean- Millennium Park
The Sky Deck- Willis tower
