By: coco_fiere Sat, 26 Jul 2008 08:26:24 +0000 I cosign on Cafe Iberico-amazing sangria! There’s a Bongo Room downtown on Roosevelt and Wabash (on the corner). If you head next door to Yang, you can get a boba fresh fruit smoothie for around $4 to keep you cool. Carnivale is excellent–they have a steak dish that is mind-blowing and their drinks are superb. For brunch, there are 2 fabulous places I take all my out-of-towners. Yolk, south on Michigan Avenue 1/2 block north of Roosevelt and Sweet Maple Cafe on Taylor St. 1/2 block east of Loomis for the most amazing biscuits(and everything) you’ll ever eat in your life.

For Chicago staples like our pizza, italian beef sandwiches and hot dogs, go to Giordano’s (Rush St. & Superior), Al’s #1 (Ontario and Wells) or Mr. Beef on Orleans (, and Portillo’s (Ohio & Clark), respectively.

For beauty shopping, there are 2 downtown Sephora locations, LUSH is in both downtown Macy’s and Bravco Beauty Center is at 43 E. Oak (just off Michigan Ave.). Enjoy your time here!

By: Mz. Stephanie Marie Wed, 23 Jul 2008 22:27:22 +0000 Hey Bella!
I live in Chicago. I don’t have a suggestion for any restaurants, but there is a shoe store you should definitely check out. It’s Downtown on State Street and Adams and it’s called AKIRA. I think you would like some of the things they have to offer. Maybe I’ll see you in there when I’m shopping this weekend 🙂

By: Aja Nicole Wed, 23 Jul 2008 20:50:41 +0000 Welcome back to the Chi!! If your going to some fab event you should share 🙂

As for the food I totally second on the Cafe Ibercio, 739 N LaSalle.

I adore Dixies Kitchen 5225 S Harper, and Park 52 5201 S Harper.

If you find your self in the NW suburbs ask if you are next to Bob Chinns, 393 S Milwaukee Ave, Wheeling, IL or Pappa Deaux’s 798 W Algonquin Rd, Arlington Hts, IL.

Bob Chinn’s is my all time favorite restuarant here even though it is out in the burbs. Also to get fun ideas my fav in the know site for Chicago is Time Out Chicago
