Chicago - Blue 13

Oh Chicago, how I missed you!

I was in Chicago the last weekend in April to visit some friends, to move my furniture back, and of course - to eat!

One of my favorite places in Chicago is located in River North, called Blue 13.  It is what I would call American Nouveau cuisine.  All of their dishes are made with fresh ingredients and are ridiculously flavorful.  

Chef Chris Curren brings such ingenuity to all of his dishes bringing out the rich flavors of each ingredient without being over powering.  Manager Dan Marunowski is very personable and treats you like you’re a friend having a meal in his own house.  They take pride in their restaurant from the music to the decor.  

They’ve also got some great deals at Blue 13, including 1/2 off wines on Tuesdays and Family Style Sunday Suppers for $20.  

When I went, they had this amazing trout that just melted in your mouth, also tater tots with a twist, and probably the best onion rings I’ve ever had in my life.
