Windy City Style

Anish Kapoor’s Cloudgate, or more fondly known as “The Bean”

I was excited to see that Elle Decor has taken a liking to Chicago , featuring The Windy City’s design, art and architecture in the eponymous mag this month.  If you’ve never been to Chicago, the slideshow gives a preview of many of Chicago’s most stately sights.  If you have been or live here, these are places you may not know or know very well, but even if you are familiar these are places that will never bore the eye.  The only unfortunate part of this article is that it only features 15 photos in the slideshow, when in reality Chicago is a treasure trove of glorious design!  I must say, the photography of the stunning shoot really does my city proud :)

So do you have any restaurant suggestions to add? I will be in Chicago this weekend and need some ideas. And as someone with excellent taste, you probably know which places have the best decor? Thank you.

I love your city. I’m from Miami, FL. I go every year for Memorial weekend and the weather is ALWAYS fantastic.
