Alinea is on the cards, which I'm already super excited about. And if Achatz's latest venture, Next, ever decides to accept non-US credit cards, I might attempt a trip there. We've also planned visits to Girl & The Goat, Blackbird, and Naha. Also on my wish list are the burgers at Kuma's Corner, foie gras fries at Big & Little's, tamales at the rather bonkers Tamalli Space Charros food truck, which is manned by people wearing Mexican wrestling masks, and the new Wagyu Wagon food truck, which as its name suggests will only be serving Wagyu beef.
Of course, I'm sure there'll be some char-dogs, deep-dish pizzas, and Garrett popcorn consumed along the way too. Oh, and did I mention the Taste of Chicago festival will also be going on while we're there? I just hope my trousers still fit by the time we leave (*loosens belt a notch in anticipation*). If anyone has some good Chicago recommendations they'd like to share then do let me know.
I probably won't get the chance to blog as often as I like while I'm away, but I'll do my best. In the meantime god sommer everyone!
