Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
This week, we’re covering EXPO Chicago and its surrounding events. To give you an insider look at the city, we’re talking to a few exceptional locals who are sharing their favorite spots to dine, drink, relax, and see art at. Below, we hear from Chefs John Shields and Karen Urie Shields, co-owners of Smyth and The Loyalist.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP:
We’re huge fans of Roister whenever we have a night off. Grant [Achatz] is a genius in the kitchen and he nails the casual fare there just as much as at Alinea. Le Bouchon for a date night because it’s where we had one of our first dates together. Our bartender Kirill has some great cocktails downstairs at The Loyalist, but if we’re going out for a drink, you can’t beat Deliah’s. It’s a classic!
WHERE TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN:
A lot of our time off is spent at The Farm, but we love to go to the beach as a family too. You can’t beat Lake Michigan in the summertime!
