Silver Spoon

This little Thai restaurant is located in the River North neighborhood.  It is possible to walk past this place several times and not even realize to walk in because it is located in basement of the building…which i’ll admit, does seem alittle shady.  However, to pass on the Silver Spoon would be a shame.  My friends and I had frequented this restaurant many times because they have a great lunch special.  The food is light, tasty, and fresh.  The atmosphere is casual.  It is always hard to find great affordable restaurants in the River North area, but this place fits the bill.  Overall, I give Silver Spoon two thumbs up!

Pizano’s Pizza

I think I have found a little gem.  For all you tourists, locals as well (which you probably already know about this place) who enjoy spending a day of shopping up and down the mag mile and are looking for some great pizza, I would definitely recommend Pizano’s Pizza found at the cross streets of State and Chestnut.   I will say that I didn’t get the typical Chicago style deep dish, which I must say isn’t really pizza, it is more like lasagna.  The buttery thin crust, toppings, and cheese are awesome.  The atmosphere was great.  The prices are typical for pizza.  The waitress was really nice. 

As a side note, I had ordered from Pizano’s prior but only as delivery.  There was an issue with the delivery and I didn’t get the pizza til almost 2 hours after I ordered it.  So as a way to say, sorry, the restaurant gave me my pizza for free and with the option for another free pizza.  I thought it was a nice touch.  I think it speaks well for the eatery.
