CHICAGO, Day 4

Breakfast at Panera 

Lunch at Rick Bayliss’ restaurant, TOPOLO:
a Margarita and Ceviche Appetizer followed by, for me, a Soft Mushroom Taco with Guacamole and Beans: Delicioso!

Shedd Aquarium:  So many amazing fishes, including seahorses!  and the strange little jellyfish below.


Dinner at PUBLICAN:  
The menu was very interesting and the dishes are made to be shared.  The Veggie List offered an intriguing choice -- Grilled Sunchokes;  they were done nicely, I think, but weren’t particularly interesting to taste.  Our other choices were more successful.  We loved the sauce on the tender, grilled squid.  And the beef tongue and the duck hearts surprised us because they were served rare instead of well-done.  

The dish that made this dinner exceptional, however, was Sea Urchin.  It was orange with a soft, creamy texture – and, as Nicole said, nothing you have ever tasted is anything like it. 

                                   Kepler thought it was all dreamy.


Drinks at THE VIOLET HOUR capped off our fun Valentine's day.  J
