Hotel: Sheraton Grand Chicago
Would I stay again? Maybe. The location was not too convenient to where my client meetings were but the room was clean, I was able to grab a quick breakfast and bottled waters in the lounge and my room had a good view of the river.
Lunch: Frontera Grill
Would I dine again? Yes. I have walked by this restaurant so many times and always thought, I must eat here. Well, after 10 years of traveling to Chicago I did and it was great. It was a Tuesday so I ordered the pork milanesa lunch special – Crunchy-coated pork shoulder, roasted tomato-serrano sauce, black beans, pickled red onions served with an arugula salad. Delish!
Would I dine again? No. I was underwhelmed by my whole experience. The restaurant was empty, my meal- shellfish risotto- was just ok and there are too many other spots to try in this city.
Lunch: Tanta Chicago
Would I dine again? Yes. Yes. Yes. My lunch was fabulous and I think it is because I was able to order a sampler and try various dishes. Order the power lunch marino which includes criollo cebiche, calamari jaleita, and criollo rice and you will not be disappointed.
