Chicago getaway

My first impression of Chicago is that it is a very pretty city. Chicago is full of delicious, exquisite cuisine. I had endlessly heard how much of a top favorite city Chicago is for people and I discovered why. A lot was always going on. People are always out. People are very friendly. Architecture doesn’t disappoint. Points of interest are many. Shout out to my friend Lilibeth, who hosted my hubby and I in her home. It gave us a local, friendly/family vibe during our stay and a perfect setting to catch up on life with my dear friend. One of the many memorable experiences was the restaurant Mexique, a Mexican cuisine with French influence. Knowledgeable, friendly staff, even the chef made for a more intimate experience and came to our table to check on how we liked everything. When we craved our beloved Mexican food, New Rebozo came to our rescue. The Bongo Room had an amazing brunch experience with a unique Chicagoan twist on breakfast favorites. Eataly was kind of like a modern farmer’s market with high-quality Italian eateries. The Signature Room was surrounded by again, very friendly staff and spectacular views of the lit up city. I loved seeing the different buildings, the clean streets, the above ground trains, and learning about the city’s rich history, among many things. Until next time Chicago!
