Chicago. Día 2: Quartino y Signature Lounge by Victoria’s Secret

Tras el ajetreado día, yendo a la Sweets & Snacks Expo, a la reunión con Coach y el partido de los Cubs. Un descanso en la bañera del hotel no me vino nada mal. Pues sólo tuve un par de horas para prepararme para la cena de la noche. Me reuní con un comprador de una gran multinacional estadounidense para compartir ideas y hablar de las tendencias de compra actuales, esto lo hicimos en el restaurante italiano Quartino, ubicado en la N State de Chicago. ¡Fue más que interesante!.

After that busy day on which I went to the Sweets & Snacks Expo, my meeting with the brand Coach and the Chicago Cubs baseball game, a bath in the tub wasn’t bad. I got ready in only those few hours that I had before went out for dinner. I met a buyer of an U.S multinational company to share some ideas and discuss about the actual buying trends. It was at the italian restaurant Quartino, located on the N State of Chicago. It was very interesting!

A pesar de estar en la “windy city” nos decidimos por cenar en la terraza. La noche estaba muy bonita y quería apreciar la ciudad mientras discutíamos nuestros puntos disfrutando de una buena pasta y un vino italiano. Ordenamos de entrantes unas gambas (camarones) al ajillo y yo pedí gnocchis al pesto

Despite being in the “windy city” we decided to dine on the terrace of the restaurant. The night was very nice and also I wanted to see the amazing city while discussing things and enjoying great pasta and italian wine. As starter we order shrimp scampi and pesto gnocchis.

Tengo que decir que el servicio fue muy amable, sinceramente la pasta no estuvo demasiado buena, a pesar de que la hacen ellos mismos y en general a la comida le faltó un poco de sabor. No podía pedir más de una cocina italiana en Chicago, pero en mi caso no fue excepcional. Sin embargo, la reunión valió la pena y el cafe expresso estaba muy bueno.

Honestly, the service was friendly but I must say that pasta wasn’t good, despite it’s homemade. Overall the food lacked a little flavor. I couldn’t ask more from an Italian cuisine in Chicago, but in my case wasn’t exceptional. However, the meeting was worth it and the expresso was great.

Después de despedirme de esta interesante persona, fui a la Hancock Tower para comer mi postre y además disfrutar del Signature Lounge ubicado en la planta 96th, pero esta vez con una persona muy especial.

After saying goodbye to that interesting person, I went to the Hancock Tower to eat my dessert and also enjoy the Signature Lounge on the 96th floor, but I spent this time with a very special person.

El Signature Lounge es un bar ubicado en la planta 96 de la Hancock Tower en Chicago, es un lugar con unas vistas increíbles en el que vale la pena ir ya sea de día o de noche, pero es un imprescindible para visitar.

Pero mi pequeña obsesión con estas nuevas medias de Victoria’s Secret es porque son increíbles como podéis ver en mis fotos crean un look muy elegante y aunque es cierto que siempre le quedarán mejor a Candice Swanepoel, la raya en medio que se usaba tanto en los años 80, ha vuelto para hacernos más estilosas.

But my little obsession with these new tights of Victoria’s Secret is because they are simply amazing. As you can see in my photos they create a very elegant look. And yes, it’s true that always will be better in Candice Swanepoel, but the parted in the middle that was so used in 80’s, has returned to make us more stylish.
