Eataly is the place to go for anything and everything Italian. Two floors of Italian food and drink arouse the senses. You can grab some coffee and a pastry or some pasta and sauce to make at home. Or you can do what I did, sit down to some freshly made pizza.
A table at La Pizza & La Pasta.
Some warm bread and olive oil to start along with a glass of Bastianich Sauvignon “Adriatico”
Pizza of choice – Teanese – three cheese pizza with mozzarella, gorganzola, grand padano and prosciutto di parma. I was worried I would not be able to eat it all, but it was too delicious to leave anything on the plate.
After some more shopping and a ton of walking, it was time for dinner at the navy pier. Lobsterfest!! Only in its 2nd year, this is a great event that brings a ton of people to the awesome Navy Pier for entertainment, food and drink.
Lobster dinner – before….and after. Demolished.
Some sangria and a Blue Moon to go along a chocolate caramel funnel cake.
Gotta love Chicago at night.
I love Chicago at any time. =)
