Counsel's Table: A Taste of Previous Reviews
Counsel's Table: GT stands for great
GT Fish & Oyster, just on the outskirts of downtown, opens to a big, clean bar area with a huge communal table and walls carrying a nautical theme (little fishing weights hold down the napkins), but in a casual, classy black-sheet rock and natural-wood surround sort of way.
Counsel's Table: Unique Mexique
One of the many problems with "The Situation," not counting the fact that he is part of the crew that ruined Seaside Heights, N.J., is that he gave himself his own nickname and you can't really do that. That's sort of the same reason that a restaurant that calls itself "fusion" is immediately suspect.
Counsel's Table: Jimmy's neighborhood
We got my son one of those Chicago neighborhood map posters for Christmas.
Counsel's Table: Hiding in plain sight
Located on Grand Avenue just off the tourist mob, Volare is a hidden gem of warm, happy-to-see-you, old school Italian.
Counsel's Table: BLT is A-OK
So I've read a few reviews of BLT American Brasserie and some were pretty harsh. Too big of a room. Spotty service. Too pricey. They are all wrong: This is a great place. Sure, it's still new and sort of out of the way. But let's give it a chance, shall we?
