Chicago- Eating at 11 Restaurants in 3 Days! I recently took a super spur of the moment 3 day trip to Chicago, Illinois.  With only 3 days to explore the big city, my best friend Josh, who recently moved to the city- made us a list of his newly found favorites.  We had everything from Mexican to Burgers and two fine dining- Michlin Star restaurants.  In this post I'm going to cover all of the dining experiences I had, except the two Michelin Star Restaurants- I'll put links to them later in the post.   There was just too much to say about those meals to cover them in this post.  I'll also include some pictures and information about the attractions I went to.  So, the only way we could possibly manage to eat at so many restaurants was to do what can be referred to as a "Snack N' Dash".  This means, going into a restaurant and ordering one or two small things, and then dashing to the next restaurant.  This way you don't get too full and you can get in and out…

It's comments like this that warm my heart and makes all the time and effort for these dinners worth it.  After all, cooking is really about bringing people together and making them happy!
