    Feel free to list your own favorites for the travelers at Dawg's.

    Last night's dinner, a belated anniversary dinner for my wife and I. Went to the restaurant Vie in Western Springs Illinois. A suburb of Chicago. Michelin star restaurant, one of my favorite places to eat not only in Chicagoland but anywhere, I highly suggest it to anyone in the area at anytime. Eliasboy, take note.

    For desert I had a vahinhano chocolate cake with popcorn gelato

    Pros of the restaurant - Excellent service, great menu, great food, plenty of homemade bread, extensive cocktail menu and supports many local growers and farms, reasonable price for the quality of service, ambiance and food.

    Cons of the resaurant - none.

    Yes reasonable. Dude, this is the suburbs, you're in Mayberry down there. The average home in the area is 5 times the price as in southern Ill.


    :facepalm: The popcorn was on there because it was popcorn flavored gelato. Yes it was good, better than you could imagine.

    My friend thinks the same way as you. Of course we eat the rest of our meal home cooked, good shit. His average day, everyday is like this; McDonalds for breakfast, Wendy's for lunch and Burger King for dinner.

    Besides, I have an alright job, the same as my wife. If I was to tell her that no, we aren't going to go out to a nice restaurant every once in a while I would have a hell cat on my hands.

    Also, going to the 17th Street Grill's website, ordering two appetizers, two dishes, two deserts and two drinks apiece will run you approximately 79 dollars without tip. The place has good ribs but I make great ribs in my smoker, for that I can feed all of Lancaster......




    Food fuck yeah!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for sharing the pics Tomtom. I love the popcorn as a garnish. Both desserts look yummy!

    Hope you two had a great anniversary. How long have you been married?
