What's for Dinner this Weekend? Try a MojoBistro Recommended Restaurant in Chicago

Are you looking to branch out and try a new dinner spot this weekend in the Chicago area? Then why not check out the Restaurant Raves by our partner company, MojoBistro. Here are three sample reviews of delicious Chicago restaurants, and we recommend you try at least one this weekend.



Twin Anchors Restaurant & Tavern, Lincoln Park: 

Looking for a little bit of dining history to accompany your savory meal in Chicago? Then you definitely have to stop by Twin Anchors Restaurant & Tavern in Lincoln Park, just a few blocks from the Second City Theatre in Old Town. It’s like stepping back in time when you enter Twin Anchors. You might recognize the barbecue restaurant from its cameos in the Bonnie Hunt, Jim Belushi, Minnie Driver, and David Duchovny movie, “Return to Me,” from 2000. The old school ambiance could have something to do with the fact that Frank Sinatra used to hang out here when he was in town. Read the complete review on the MojoBistro blog by clicking here.

Mercadito Chicago, River North: 

It just might be my favorite Mexican restaurant in Chicago! It definitely gets my vote for restaurant with the best margarita in town. There is simply nothing better than a margarita on the rocks made with freshly squeezed lime juice and good tequila after a long week at work. Hands down as far as I’m concerned, Mercadito has one of the freshest and tastiest margaritas in town as well as a first-rate line up of tequilas. I’m not a fan of margaritas made with cheap tequila and generic sweet and sour mix, which you definitely won’t find here. The bar at Mercadito is always packed with folks sipping on margaritas and that should tell you all you need to know! Read more.


Carmichael's Chicago Steakhouse, West Loop: 

Carmichael’s Chicago Steakhouse in the West Loop is my go-to steak restaurant for dining before events at the United Center. The restaurant even offers a complimentary shuttle to the majority of events at the UC (call ahead to confirm). We’ve taken the shuttle to see the Blackhawks and Bulls. For a past holiday gift, we treated my mother-in-law to dinner at Carmichael’s and tickets to see her favorite team, the Blackhawks. It’s a great place to treat your loved ones to a special meal! We’ve dined at Carmichael’s for birthdays, anniversaries, and for fun date nights. Our friend even had her daughter’s first birthday party there on a Sunday afternoon. Whatever the occasion, Carmichael’s is a friendly place with delicious food to celebrate at! Read more.
