|The Mighty John Hancock Building Towers Over Chicago and Lake Michigan|
Those are very tough questions. We have traveled so much, and had so many wonderful and memorable dinners, and so many truly great home-cooked meals, that it really is impossible to say any given one is THE BEST.
But, we decided to try to answer those questions individually and then compare our answers. So...here goes!:
