THE QUESTION: If you can only visit one restaurant for the rest of the year, where are you going?

“Cafe Iberico for tapas. It’s one of my all-time favorites. I just got engaged and took my future wife there. I think we tried everything on the menu, especially the scallops and mojitos.”

“Piccolo Sogno. It’s beautiful. Excellent service. Their ravioli, it’s like biting into a pillow. I’m a vegetarian, so I’m picky in general, but their Italian food are amazing. Bread and salad dressings too.”

“El Mariachi on Broadway in Lakeview. Their enchalada suiza is to die for, they make the guacamole fresh right in front of you and the ambiance oozes with Mexican flare.

“I would do Texas de Brazil. Whatever you do, save yourself for the meat choices, which is tough to do with their salad bar. Save your hunger… it’s worth it.”
