I am heading to Chicago tomorrow for a great event. Unfortunately, it is only to buy my wife her birthday gift and not to party the night away with Charlie. I tried talking her into it, but being 8 months pregnant, watching me have multiple cocktails and partake in some unbelievable food all night just didnít really appeal to her.
Like him or hate him, the man is one of the masters and Chicago will definitely have a hole in its restaurant draw with his departure. Anyone do time under his watch?
From a customer standpoint, I was blessed with only one dinner there and was thoroughly impressed. The Chicago Tribune has a multiple part series this week which has been an interesting read.
Take care Charlie and hope we see you again someday.
