Romance is different for everyone. For some of us, it’s a quiet meal at home. For others, it’s a pizza on the couch with the person they love best. White Castle fulfilled an unexpected craving when it introduced its special white tablecloth Valentine’s dinners. But many are still traditionalists: romance is an experience outside the ordinary, either extraordinarily luxurious food, or an extravagant setting that provides an opportunity for two people to be alone in public. Or, preferably, both these things. Here are 20 Chicago restaurants that fit the bill.
Gene & Georgetti
Gene & Georgetti’s old-school atmosphere is the real thing: it’s been serving steak and chops and red-sauce Italian classics in its wood-paneled dining room in River North for more than 80 years. There’s probably no better restaurant in Chicago to re-create the spaghetti-slurping scene from Lady and the Tramp.
