It was J’s birthday over the weekend and we did a lot of celebrating! I think I was more excited for his birthday than he was. The weekend started with happy hour on Friday at Citizen. It was the perfect little get together for J to celebrate with his friends.
Saturday was J’s actual birthday and we spent a relaxing day together followed by dinner at Bavette’s. The drinks, food, and service was incredible. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and even picked some items for us when we couldn’t decide. I love knowledgeable wait staff, it makes the dining experience so much better! I highly recommend Bavette’s for your next special occasion.
Lastly, we went to a family dinner on Sunday at Topo Gigio in Old Town. Topo never fails to serve up a great meal. It is one of the most consistently good restaurants in Chicago.
Hope you had a great weekend!
