Think beyond River North, Logan Square and Bucktown and fan the flames on the south side. The Promontory, located in Hyde Park, offers a sweet setup for snuggling and staying warm by the open hearth brick oven. Ask for seats at the chef's counter and dine with your paramour on delights from Chef Carlos Cruz: blistered Shishito peppers; chilled oysters; eggplant Parmesan; scallops with popcorn grits; and duck breast with coffee parsnips; among the options. (There's a short but tasty late night menu available between 11 pm and 1 am, too). Nibble from the cookie plate or share a sundae. Cocktails are fun to consider like the Figment In Thyme made with fig and thyme gin. Check the music sked and book seats to a show in the modern second floor music hall. The state-of-the-art sound system can only be matched by your state-of-the-heart.
- Romantic Dining: "Perhaps a night at the new SOPHY Hyde Park boutique hotel will put an exclamation point on the night. Rooms offer a record player with a selection from local musicians on vinyl."
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: This date-night spot offers a romantic experience with a casual yet warm charm and the music venue adds another layer.
