While I know I already shared my foodie itinerary for Chicago, I thought now that we are back from our trip I'd let you know what we thought and if everything on our original itinerary lived up to the hype. So first things first....WE LOVED CHICAGO! As a reminder, I hadn't been there since I was a child and Christian had never been. So it was pretty new for both of us...and to be honest we were expecting to like it, but not much more. But after a day in Chicago I was talking about wanting to move there, and I love living in San Francisco and left Massachusetts because I hated the winters...but Chicago is that cool. I honestly felt like the greatness of the city would outweigh any awfulness of the winters that I had heard about...but Christian disputed and insisted he wouldn't move to Chicago with me so I had to let it go. But really, such a clean and vibrant city with amazing architecture and waterways. If you haven't been, go. Preferably in the late spring or early fall from what I hear.
So, our foodie itinerary. How did we fare? Very well if you ask me. While we may not have made every destination on our itinerary, we made it to the important ones and let me just say, we ate extremely well while in Chicago!
