Since I am a foodie at heart, I picked out a food-related date for the BF and I to try out. The date included a night of Midwestern seasonal food at TWO on the Near West side. The date included a chef's tasting menu with two glasses of champagne, four shared plates, two glasses of wine, dessert to share, and two after-dinner drinks. All we had to do was make a reservation, show up, and chow down!
We arrived at TWO for our Saturday night date and were immediately greeted by the general manager, Yamandu Perez with a handshake. He made us feel so welcome and happy to be there, and I saw him treat each and every patron with the same welcome handshake and hello. Talk about a great first impression!

Note: Our date at TWO was complementary, however all opinions expressed here are my own and TWO was unaware I would be reviewing the experience.
