So I was just wondering whose has ate at this restaurant and who wants to? With it being just a few blocks down from the convention center it is a good place to get a good meal. I know many of the attendee's have a budget and a $40 meal will not fit in it, but one of the reasons I go is to enjoy the great food Chicago has to offer. I wouldn't mind getting a group to go on Friday of the con.

Here's the website i found, you should check out the menu if nothing else, i love fine dining when i get the chance.

If you come to Columbus, Ohio you should check out Digger and Finch, very very good food :thumbup: the Sirloin Au Poive was delicious :D

I live in Columbus. As of yet I haven't tried Digger and Finch. Have you tried Ruth's Chris steakhouse? I did take a look at the menu for Capital grille. The last two years I ate at Gibson's which is just across the street from the convention center and they have great food. I just wanted to try something new this year. I think I can drag Rondo, Flyingelf, and Giveuptheghost along with me and would like to get e few more for dinner sometime between 7 and 10.

No i have not been to that one yet, though i have been to J. Gilbert's have you tried them?

Was Gibson's good? I might have to try that on one of my Acen trips :) Fridays always seem so busy so it would be hard to commit to dinner plans with a group, but I'll ask my friends that I'm coming in with. It would be easier once i see the panel, and event schedule for Friday to i can plan accordingly. I hate missing something i might enjoy or want to attend, since I am going mainly for Acen this year. When would you want an answer by? or will you be there Thursday for the Meet and Greet? A bigger group would be easier once everyone knows there schedules for the weekend :)

Yes I have tried Gilberts. Gibson's is a great steakhouse you should try it one year. I will be at the meet on Thurs. We have until the con to figure out who all will be able to go for dinner so no real hurry.

I've eaten there a few times. But like you said, definitely not people with a budget xD. The Lobster Mac n Cheese is good :x.

off topic: is that a Portillo's Chilidog for your avatar xD??
Find out.

With how hectic the weekend can get I just feel everyone should eat at least one good meal.

Well we could always kidnap you for two hours and then bring you back after dinner.

Ooh... I'm interested if I can make it (I tend to kinda float around at-con...). It can't be (much) more expensive than breakfast at the Hyatt restaurant.

While 40 dollars sounds extremely high for a meal, perhaps I could find a way to squeeze a visit in.

Not sure that I'm doing hentai wars this year. I haven't been asked to be on the panel yet and I have been asked to be on "Your Favorite Anime Sucks" which is also typically on friday night, so I very well may be doing that this year instead.

I just know that if you are part of the panel then I am guaranteed to be amused. Nothing pisses me off more than going to a panel that makes me consider suicide over sitting through the whole thing.

8:30 is perfect. It allows people who want to attend that panel to do so and then not have to worry to much about rushing from their straight to the restaurant. Not to mention its not so late that youll be eating at 10pm lol

So 8:30 will be the official time which is good because the restaurant is a little distance from the hotel.

If you go by mapquest, it is a half mile down the street. So about a seven minute walk.
