Chicago. I returned home today from a very good trip to Chicago (business). Didn't take the camera, meals were for business so I'm just going to describe a couple places. In Gurnee, we visited Steven's, which is a steak house in a strip mall. Fine dining in strange surroundings, however it was good. The signature crab and brie soup was amazing. It has good seafood in addition to steak. I had a sesame crusted ahi tuna salad which was very good. Last night I enjoyed dinner at Riva's on Navy Pier on Lake Michigan in Chicago. I had a wonderful copper river salmon encrusted in hazelnuts. Beautiful presentation and great flavor. It's the second time I've been to Riva's and it has been consistently good. The weather was outstanding too.
