Romantic Dining in Chicago

Chicago is a great town for dining out, especially for a romantic dinner!.The Windy City is well known for its steaks and ribs, with establishments like Magnum's and Morton's specializing in Grade A prime beef. Pizza is also a local favorite, and the city has a huge selection of Italian and Greek restaurants too.It's not easy narrowing down the choices for romantic dining in Chicago, but we've discovered 3 places that we think will not disappoint. Enjoy?.

Everest: 40 floors up at the One Financial Place Skyscraper. It's been called one of the finest restaurants in Chicago by more then one reviewer! Rich French cuisine, a comprehensive wine list, and work-of-art desert offerings. The service and the ambience are all first rate. Price?wise this is not for budget-minded romantic diners, but more of a special occasion experience.

440 S. La Salle St., 40th Floor Chicago, IL.

Red Rooster Wine Bar & Cafe: Perfect for a romantic and reasonably priced dinner out. Cozy setting with tasty French fare including duck a l'orange and one of my all time faves, creme brulee. Many entrees priced in the $12-15 range. 2100 N Halsted St Chicago, IL.Signature Room at the 95th: You won't find a restaurant much higher than this in Chicago, or anywhere for that matter! This contemporary American dining room is on the 95th floor of the John Hancock Center, the standout high-rise of the Chicago skyline. Steak, lobster and lamb are featured, if you can keep your eyes on the plate and not out the window!.

The Signature can get busy, but there's an adjacent lounge with the same view where you can sip a cocktail while waiting for a open table. Open for Brunch on Sunday too. 875 N Michigan Ave, John Hancock Center, Chicago, IL.Copyright 2005 Excellent Romantic Vacations.
