More on Chicago
I came to Chicago because Jessica is working on her photography thesis. I was happy to come along. All the restaurants I chose was because you could make a reservation. There are many that I wanted to try but I did not want to deal with waiting. Like NYC, the new places do not take reservations. I am not a fan because I really hate to wait and particularly when you travel I like to know what we are doing after a full day.
The first night we went to The Savoy. Cute restaurant with a bar atmosphere in the back which is where we sat. They have tons of cocktails all with absinthe and it seems to be the thing to get there. So we did. This is called Isle of Man which is like a Manhattan. Really not my thing so a few sips and I was done.
We got up the next morning and walked over to the Museum of Contemporary Art. This piece in front is fantastic by Martin Creed. I hope they keep it there permanently.
We went to a photography store and got a few things Jessica needed before going back for her shoot. It is really great watching what she does. Her whole thought process behind what she is trying to show and learn from is very cool.
That night we went to Piccolo Sogno Due for dinner. Definitely an older persons crowd. Jessica had to be the youngest in there by easily 20 years. We split a few appetizers to start. Crudo with grapefruit. Nothing great.
