“It's easy to overlook this restaurant, since it is just off of Randolph's restaurant row and on an obscure side street. Anyway, it's the real deal, with all the classic French comfort foods, impeccably prepared. It's really the small details that make the difference: the warm, crusty French bread and sweet butter served before you even order; the exactly correct Dijon mustard that accompanies the country-style house-made terrine of pork pate; the croutons on your Salad Lyonnaise that have obviously just been toasted; the perfect crust of gruyere on the French onion soup; and of course the right ambiance and soundtrack to accompany a classic French bistro meal. Go on Tuesday night!”
“Solve the puzzles to escape the zombie! A very fun and engaging activity to go with friends and family. Teamwork is crucial to solve the puzzles and every contribution is important.

“An authentic Mexican restaurant with heart and soul, La Josie. While located in the trendiest of Chicago spots at the moment (West Loop), it retains its home-grown charm. The interior and rooftop are nicely decorated and modern, but the food has it's Chicago heritage in El Solazo, near Midway, and Taqueria Los Comales at 63rd and Albany. And really it all goes back to the family's roots in Jalisco, Mexico. Start with the of guacamole along with the classic mezcal margarita...The menu contains all the Mexican/American classics to leave you comfortable and satisfied. Prices are a bit high, but welcome to Restaurant Row!”
