I love going to Tara at Art and Science in Bucktown to get my hair cut. She always takes her time and it looks great everytime. It is pricey but worth the money.
The food at le Lan is fantastic. Everything is fresh and innovative. I highly recommend the dumplings. The service is great and the atmosphere is elegant.
Le Colonial's bar area and dining room are beautiful. It is a great spot for a romantic dinner. The food and service is also terrific. I will definitely go back.
Helen Yi has some beautiful pieces for women, but the selection is sparse and the items are incredibly expensive. It is a good place to shop if you are looking for a very special designer piece.
Tangerine is a really great clothing boutique in the bucktown area. They have a unique and diverse selection of women's clothing and also have a great selection of bags and accessories.
The atmosphere at Janiks is great for a relaxed breakfast or brunch, but I think they quality of the food could be better. Prices are low and the service is good, so that is a plus. I have never tried their lunch.
Bob san offers fresh sushi at reasonable prices. It can get crowded on weekends, so reservations are helpful. Nice atmosphere and good service. I go often and am always pleased with my meal.
