Concierge,  DoubleTree Chicago Magnificent Mile

When my guests ask for the one restaurant to go to in Chicago, I steer them to the historic Gene & Georgetti. Serving the best specialties that Chicago’s known for in an old school setting, I just love the wood-framed walls and red carpeting. Make sure to try the broiled lamb chops and mostaccioli in meat sauce.

Others to Try:

My favorite spot is The Boarding House. The restaurant is beautiful and the wine glass chandelier is stunning. Not only can you enjoy dinner in a wonderful ambiance, but the food is incredibly flavorful. I personally love their seared scallops and their perfectly cooked venison. If you love wine, there is an great list and the Grow a Pear cocktail is delightfully refreshing.

Others to Try:
  • Black Bull
  • The Bedford
  • The Aviary

STK is a perfect one-stop spot for a night out. This modern steakhouse boasts a sexy atmosphere—complete with DJs spinning current and throwback hits—and their wet-aged steaks are sure to melt in your mouth. Try sides like their jalapeno cheddar grits and start off with their seared scallops or tuna tartare. After dinner, unwind in the chic Champagne bar. Enjoy half off the entire wine list every Wednesday in February.
