Happy Valentine's Day! Mike and I decided to beat the holiday crowds and celebrate yesterday with a wonderful lunch at Blackbird. It was my first time there and I really couldn't have designed a better restaurant for my husband and I if I tried. It has everything he likes; an ultra modern space, creative ingredients, artful presentation, and flavored butter. It also has everything I like; messy ham sandwiches, french fries, beer, and waiters who get to wear their own ties. The only slight drawback is the general clientele, who are mostly older wealthy folks who I'm pretty sure spend their weekends trying to reenact Eyes Wide Shut in their lakeside mansions. But that's kind of the norm for downtown dining. You're either going to eat next to kinky rich white people or sweatpant-clad tourists who complain about how expensive everything is. Or quarterback Jay Cutler, who is both.
