Summer is a great time to get out and about to explore the yummy parts of our great city. The mushrooming dining scene in Chicago constantly keeps us on our toes — new and fantastic eateries seem to pop up daily. In fact, according to the City of Chicago, there are more than 7,300 restaurants! Why not take to the streets, with kiddos in tow, and have a dessert fete? Go on a sugary adventure and indulge in the best that Chicago has to offer—here are a few to get you started.

Michael Jordan’s Steak House

Kids today still know and love six-time NBA champion and five-time M.V.P., MJ, so why not take them to Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse located inside the lovely InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile? Kids will freak out when they see the 23-layer chocolate cake, the Nutella crème brulee or the peanut butter pie. Reserve Table 23, the actual table that’s reserved for Michael Jordan when he visits, and dine from a prix-fixe menu of his favorites.
