Lunching at Lauren

27 October 2011

Markus and I flew in to Chicago yesterday to finish his birthday week out with a bang. When we landed I told him the whole trip could be his itinerary besides one small detail. I had made a reservation for our very first meal in town to be at RL, the restaurant at Ralph Lauren's flagship store in Michigan Ave.

My all time favorite restaurant is the Mermaid Bar at Neiman Marcus' Northpark location, and since then I have loved eating at the dining rooms at department and fine retail stores. There is something about the visual and perfectionist environment of a department store that always translates perfectly to their restaurants. RL was no different and absolute perfection. Our meals choices are below: tomato bisque, spinach salad, Brussels sprouts, espresso with lemon rind and a special birthday crime brûlée!

Such a perfect way to start a trip. What else do we need to experience while we're here?
