Red Eye Chicago - - Eat&drink -

1000 W. Ful­ton Mar­ket 312-733-9420 While Obama was in town in Oc­to­ber to cast an early bal­lot in the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, he stopped by the West Loop steak­house for a pri­vate event. As ev­i­dence, a group of 10 staffers snapped a pic with a smiley prez and posted it to Face­book with the cap­tion “Best. Fri­day. Ever. Thank you, Mr. Pres­i­dent Barack Obama for din­ing with us!” Face­book post or it didn’t hap­pen, right?

1518 E. 53rd St. 773-667-0647 When you start look­ing into the Oba­mas’ fa­vorite Chicago haunts, this cash-only spot in Hyde Park is one of the restau­rants that ap­pears over and over again. And for good rea­son. Way back when, be­fore he was pres­i­dent, Obama used the restau­rant’s din­ing room to host com­mu­nity meet­ings. It’s a fre­quent stop when he’s vis­it­ing these days, too. The steak and eggs is re­port­edly his go-to break­fast of choice.


980 N. Michi­gan Ave. 312-280-2750 The Gold Coast Ital­ian restau­rant is a no­table spe­cial oc­ca­sion din­ing des­ti­na­tion for the Oba­mas. In 2008, the year Obama was first elected pres­i­dent, the Chicago Tri­bune re­ported that the cou­ple cel­e­brated three very im­por­tant mo­ments at the restau­rant: Michelle Obama’s birth­day, their an­niver­sary on Oct. 3 and their first din­ner out to­gether af­ter the elec­tion vic­tory.
