    I love Cafe Ba Ba Reeba and Mon Ami!! Mon Ami had a fantastic restaurant week menu. Definitely think I need to make a point to head there.

    Boka is super romantic- and you can eat in the bar area if you don’t want to spend a ton of money!

    Schwa is hands down the best meal I’ve ever had- both times I went! Not cheap but so so worth it!

    I am definitely adding Fat Rice to my list, I had no idea they had pastel de nata- I was so obsessed with those in Portugal!! My favorite date spot isn’t on your list! Violet Hour in Wicker Park—very dark and romantic, it’s pricy but the cocktails are SO good!! Also it’s right off the blue line Damen stop!

      Ahh how could I forget that on this list! I’m pretty sure I added it to my Girl’s Night list actually ? And you MUST go to Fat Rice! You will love it!!!
