365.157: make a wish

Birthday meal #1: Blackbird, 619 W. Randolph, Chicago, IL 60661
Verdict: over priced. over hyped. beautiful space, nice presentation, but TINY portions and STEEP prices. and every dish was a bit too busy for my tastes.

it’s been a while since i’ve left a restaurant so disappointed. (paul kahan, your restaurants are now on my black list.) keeping my fingers crossed that the rest of the week’s meals go better.

  1. That’s too bad! Hope the other birthday meals are more enjoyable.

  2. Don’t put Publican on the black list. It is amazing! Trust me.

  3. Happy Birthday! And I hope the other birthday meals make up for this one!
