Restaurant hopping for my birthday...

Recently I celebrated a birthday and took a long weekend doing so. What fun! I thought I'd give a shout out to the wonderful restaurants that I visited. If you are in Chicago, and you have the opportunity, make it a point of dropping by, if it's your cup of tea so to speak.

My birthday was on a Sunday, but I began on a Thursday. The hubby and I had a wonderful meal at L26 on 26th & State. The food was absolutely, melt in your mouth while your toes are wiggling and you're humming, delicious. I ordered the lamb with garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach. I don't eat meat often, at all. Usually I eat it no more than 2-3 a year because it makes me feel so heavy, as if I'd eaten an entire turkey. I felt nothing like that. The lamb was so light and juicy and perfectly seasoned; I may eat lamb twice as much, now. The hubby substituted the lamb for salmon which was by far the best I've tasted.

I just couldn't resist telling everyone I can about this restaurant, it is not often that I find really good ones; with excellent service, too! And, to boot, 3 of the 4 restaurants I visited my birthday weekend were excellent. I'll let you in on the other two later...
