Have you ever watched the Netflix series Chefs Table? If not and you love food, you may want to check it out! The episodes are all so unique, because the restaurants, chefs, and locations are all so different.

One episode in particular really got us. Justin and I watched it over and over again in the span of a few months and he was determined that we would go to Chicago to try it. One day a month they open reservations for 2 months ahead, and within seconds “tickets” sell out. After a few failed attempts, we were able to get a reservation for August. Justin’s parents offered to watch Ben so we were able to get away for a couple days together which was so nice.

If you ever get the chance to go, I HIGHLY recommend it. The food was unreal, the service was beyond incredible, and the experience…well, it was phenomenal. I can honestly say my favourite part of going was watching Justin’s face throughout the dinner though. He was in absolute heaven.

And a few more photos from our trip to Chicago minus the Cubs game photos which I forgot to pull from Justin’s phone:

 1st time flying out of Porter Airport. Absolutely loved it! I may or may not have had 3 of these…ie 6 espresso shots. I don’t know why they were so good, but they were.

 The Chicago Athletic Association is such a neat place to visit if you get a chance. Their breakfast was aaaamazing.

 I’m not usually one for tours, but if you go to Chicago, The Boat Tour is really, really good. The architecture is pretty incredible and it’s such a neat way to see the city and learn about it. Our tour guide was pretty hilarious too so it made for a fun afternoon activity.
