With so many of us traveling all over the place, I thought it'd be fun to put together a little resource thread -- in case any of you show up in my city! Please add your own! My city: Chicago Best Department Store: Saks Fifth Ave... I prefer their layout to the Neiman Marcus here. Best Boutique: Hejfina in Wicker Park. Lots of up and coming designers, interesting house wares, etc. Best Street for Shopping: Michigan Avenue has all the upscale favorites: Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, etc. Belmont for some zany, offbeat hipster shops. Best Upscale Restaurant: TRU for a truly unforgettable meal. Best Overall Restaurant: Sweets and Savories for great French food that won't kill your budget Best Hidden Restaurant: Billy Goat's. It's a true Chicago stop, featured in Blues Brothers. It's underneath Michigan Avenue so you've got to seek it out, but it's worth a trip! Best burgers in the world. Best Daytime Activity: Visiting the Museum of Contemporary Art or the Art Institute. Best Nighttime Activity: Seeing the Joffery Ballet, going to The Underground (hidden club you have to seek out), having drinks on top of the Hancock Center. Best Hotel: The James, which is just off of Michigan Avenue. It's an upscale boutique hotel that's affordable and much more interesting than the big guys.
