Thai One On

I just returned from a trip to Chicago and realized that I haven’t yet mentioned one of my favorite restaurants that I go to regularly when I’m in town. It’s called Dao Thai Restaurant and Noodle Palace conveniently located just east of Michigan Avenue on Ohio.

They have terrific food and service, but one of my favorite features of this restaurant is a row of tables down the center aisle that just have pads as seats with an opening for your legs. I break my own usual pattern of eating at the bar when alone to sit at one of those.

My faves:
Pad Thai with extra tofu (fried) and peanuts and the Crab Rangoon Wantons

Welcome fellow Road Warriors! Like many of you, I travel for work -- A lot! But believe it or not, I actually pretty much love it. I've become a bona fide business travel tourist by finding quick things to do when I find myself with the bits of free time that we business travelers sometimes get (i.e. after meetings and before dinner.) especially if I'm in a great city like Chicago, NY or San Francisco. Because we never have much time, this blog is all about quick, easy, inexpensive/free things to do in some of the cities I travel to along with recommendations for restaurants that are great for meals with colleagues, but also perfectly comfortable for solo dining. So maybe next time you find that you have a few minutes to yourself on a business trip, before you just automatically head for your hotel room, barricade yourself in with your computer and cell phone and order room service, you'll be inspired to become a business travel tourist and start loving your business travel too. Feel free to comment on any of my posts and let me and other readers know if you have tips, or recommendations. Happy Travels!
