Chicago: Custom House

On our last day in Chicago, we wanted to back to Orange for brunch. However, the place was packed. We decided to try out Custom house, the restaurant adjoining our hotel. Glad we did!
I was a little bit apprehensive; I was expecting steep prices for average food.
Nope! It was expensive ($32 for brunch) but it was also succulent. All the dishes had subtle tastes, comforting, yet sophisticated textures. A really nice way to end a great trip to Chicago!

By the way, one last thing: if you fly to Chicago, take the subway from the airport to downtown. There are a lot of stops, however, no traffic, and it costs only $2 instead of $25 or so for shuttle bus. The view is nicer too...
