Today we have favorite Chicago restaurant picks from Michelle Williams, who was in a little musical group called Desinty's Child. Maybe you've heard of them. Michelle was born and raised in Rockford, Illinois, and attended Illinois State University before going full-time music when she started out as a background vocalist for R&B; singer Monica. It's safe to say she knows her way around downtown Chicago as well.
Michelle is best known for her time alongside Beyoncé and Kelly, but she's also an accomplished gospel singer, solo artist, and musical theatre performer. And with a voice like Michelle's it's not surprising. Check out her most recent solo project, and holler at her on Twi tter and Instagram to say what's up. Of course, don't miss her Friday Fives below. Now excuse us while we go get chocolate chip pancakes.
michelle's "Perfect for" Picks
“My favorite is the chocolate chip pancakes! Their just not buttermilk pancakes with chips lazily sprinkled in them or on them….the ACTUAL pancake is CHOCOLATE batter! With whipped cream and chocolate chips on top! The chips just melt as you spread! YUMMERZ!! Some of the best bacon too! Thick cut!!!”
“OMG! The mac n cheese at Rockit is amazing!!! Creamy and sooooo good!!!”
“Everything at Sunda is fabulous! From the oxtail potstickers to the crispy rice spicy tuna roll. The roasted brussels sprouts salad is super good! Everything is always fresh! If you want a good drink….get the Strawberry Fields Martini.”
“I love their food. The desserts are HUGE! Can literally feed 6 people. Grab a slice of carrot cake. I love people watching outside on the patio! I sit there for hours!”
“Giordano’s has the best stuffed pizza in the world! I go for a classic cheese and sausage!! Their regular thin crust is really good too but I prefer that a first timer grab a stuffed pie!”
