Hubbard Inn, Quiote, and Cheesie's Pub and Grub 4/28/17

I've got some great picks for you this week!!  They will satisfy your chic oyster cravings, as well as your taco needs, and all of your melty grilled cheese dreams will come true too.  Click here to listen to my 101-WKQX radio that aired today!

 

Hubbard Inn

Hubbard Inn has been one of my go-to spots for years now.  It has this warm and cozy feeling that you get from candlelight, red leather booths, and a dark Victorian-era library vibe.  It's truly a gorgeous multi-leveled space.  Thankfully, the food and craft cocktails match the decor.  It's a delicious and comforting elevated gastro-pub menu with a killer seafood selection.

And if you want the best bang for your buck in River North during happy hour, you have got to check this out!  They have a daily weekday raw bar happy hour (or 3 hours) from 4-7pm that includes $1 oysters, $1 clams, $2 scallop crudo, $2 king crab legs, and $3 oyster shooters. Insane!!

Not only can you hit up their happy hour, but you can stay for an outstanding dinner, and then head upstairs to their lounge/nightclub and experience some of Chicago's best nightlife.  Man, I have spent plenty a night up on floors 2 and 3, whew!  Never a dull moment.

Switching gears big-time, if you are looking for Mother's Day plans, Hubbard Inn is a sure way to make Mom feel extra special.  They're having a multi-course brunch menu, seafood platters, brunch carving station, and incredible dessert selection.  My mom LOVES it there, so I'm sure your will too!

Quiote

I could eat tacos all day every day.  So when I find a great new taco spot I get incredibly excited.   So you can imagine how hard it is knowing that there's this incredible new taco/authentic Mexican cuisine restaurant in Logan Square, that's getting rave reviews, and I haven't been yet!!  I know I don't talk about places I haven't yet tried, but I couldn't resist.  Quiote looks INCREDIBLE.  And as soon as I'm back in town, eating everything on the menu will be my first order of business.  So if you've been, PLEASE comment below and let me know what you think and what I should get, thanks!!  Just look at these beauties below!
