Le Colonial

When’s the last time you’ve had Vietnamese food? Maybe you never have. Whether it’s been a week or a lifetime, you can’t go wrong with Gold Coast spot Le Colonial.

VIA LIMA

Via Lima

Chicago has a number of Peruvian restaurants, but most are BYOB. From a spending standpoint, this is a good thing, and makes it possible to enjoy a delicious meal out with as many drinks as you want, at an affordable price point. However, Peru’s most popular cocktails are amazing, and best made by a professional. Not only does Via Lima have incredibly delicious and authentic Peruvian fare, but they can also make you a butt-kicking Pisco Sour. Give their Chicago Restaurant Week menu a try for a chance to sample classic Peruvian favorites.
