Best First-Date Chicago Restaurants: North Pond in Lincoln Park
You will be burned into your date's memory if you choose this romantic gem on a bluff with views of the gentle Lincoln Park pond. This is a restaurant steeped in the Arts and Crafts tradition, from the 1912 building to the fresh, local, seasonal produce from small farms that are a staple of Chef Bruce Sherman's kitchen. The pan-browned duck breast with charred peaches and compote just rules. This is a place for whispers, private toasts and the clever double entendre. Float right in. Located at 2610 N. Cannon Dr.
