My boyfriend and I are going to Chicago this weekend and are staying near River North, based on the map. Looking for restaurant recommendations (we tend to gravitate to Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican, Spanish (tapas), and would like to try deep dish pizza) and we are open to doing take out as well. Thank you!

😂😂 this made me chuckle. What types of food do you like? Chicago has a huge restaurant scene so that’ll narrow it down a little

Chicago RPMs are so sad. I loved the one on DC and have been so disappointed by the food, ambiance, and service in Chicago. For those prices Bavettes and Maple & Ash are wayyyy better.

Pequods for deep dish. Bar Ramone for tapas although they may still be closed for dine-in. Aba is always a hit (Mediterranean). Shanghai Terrace is pricey but we really loved their food if you like Chinese. Lots of places in Fulton Market area if you want to just walk around and explore. The only good Vietnamese places I know are more hole-in-the-wall and a bit further out — but if you’re willing to venture out, LD Pho. Not sure if open for dine-in.

Pequoad's is trash. Nothing but hype and a smidge of sauce on mountain of bread.

Both Giordano's and Lou's are better my a mile. But if you really want the best deep dish, you actually have to leave the city limits and go to Burt's in Morton Grove. Hate all you want, but I know I'm right.

Sunda hands down for Thai Fusion! Deep Dish - try Lou Malnati’s and also Giordano’s; both are different. For Mexican, Frontera Grill or Topolobampo is by the chef Rick Bayless or Federales. Also, Randolph Street has some of the best restaurants in Chicago (Girl and the Goat, Au Cheval, etc.).

Chicago pizza is tavern style, and best done at Aurilio’s.

Cajun isn't on your list but "Heaven on Seven" is a bucket list restaurant. Even if you hate Cajun, I still recommend it.

Tanta!

Antique Taco has my favorite tacos! I used to live in Chicago and whenever I visit I get tacos from there at least once

Pizanos on State Street, best pizza in the city, great service and atmosphere.

Problem is that I’d like to give Major Company a chance to pull strings before I hand in my notice and they get told that I resigned immediately (worst case, but I have trust issues with my firm starting pretty early on). Should I try it?
