F2: Hot Spots

Welcome again to Friday's Feast1. Today I'll be talking about favorite places you love to eat.

Participants in this weeks Feast are as follows:


My wife posed the question to me: "If you had a visitor from out of town and wanted to take them someplace to eat, where would you take them?" I always want to be accomidating, but I think that many times you want to take someone to a place that you love yourself. I try to avoid those places that I consider "Tourist Traps" that most people tend to go to and try to go to those "Diamonds in the rough" that are great places to go, but are known only to locals.

Since my wife and I Love breakfast, the place that we would take a guest to is Symphony's Cafe (I know this is not in Chicago— but this place is close to where we live). But the cool thing about this restaurant is that they also serve great lunches and dinners. I recently had dinner there and was amazed at the great choices that they have— it is quite upscale, but it's also inexpensive. This is one of those restaurants that have slowly become tops on our list of places to eat. If you're ever in Chicago, I would suggest giving it a try.

OK… what about you— if you had a visitor from out of town, where would you take them to eat?


Next month is March— which means Saint Patrick's Day. I'm looking for posts that relate to this festive time. Ways to interpret this topic include…

  • "Goin' Green"— foods that are (or can be) green.
  • What Irish foods do you serve on Saint Patrick's Day?
  • Why on earth would they dye the beer green… does it make it more potent?

So… if you have anything that relates to this topic, be sure to leave a comment and include the URL so I can include you in next weeks feast. Even if you have already posted on this topic in the past— your links are always welcome.
