Al Capone Tour
According to the yellow pages Al Capone has traded with antiques in the early decades of the past century, that is with second-hand furniture. What else did Alphonse Gabriel aka Al Capone need in order to become the most notorious criminal in America? Gambling, alcohol and prostitution. These were the ingredients with which he stirred up the Chicago underworld. Moreover, with his cover-up tactics - he invested illegal revenues in laundry services - he laid the foundation for money laundering. How exactly the crafty self-exposer managed to do so remains unclear. His domain in the Windy City, however, is not. The Haunting of Al Capone tour by tour provider Weird Chicago follows the most important locations of Al Capone's activities. Many of his buildings are already torn down and replaced by new complexes. His ghost, however, is said to be still around. That's why Troy Taylor and Ken Melvoin-Berg take Capone fans to Mt Carmel Cemetry in Hillside, too - where the gangster boss was buried. Hopefully, for good!

Goosefoot
It's the raising star in Chicago: Chris Nugent left the fabulous Les Nomades and opened his own restaurant with his wife Nina. Small but mighty, with 34 seats, golden chairs and benches that match the shiny metallic tables. The composition is loosened up by bright walls and nooks with gently lit art works. Equally perfectly arranged are the plates, almost like paintings. The dishes are an intelligent synthesis of French cuisine and an abundance of modern ideas. Poached lobster is combined with maitake mushrooms and agnolotti with pumpkin stuffing. In addition you'll be served soup made of lobster, coconut, curry and liquorice foam. Technically, the courses are prepared in a perfect fashion - which is self-evident for Nugent. Many basic products are cultivated by Chris and Nina themselves: sorrel, strawberry spinach, Indian cress, and chart. By the way: you can bring your own wine.

The James Chicago
Likeable luxury. That you'll already notice in terms of the personal service. At the James they go without the stiffness of traditional five-star hotels. This openness also offers a platform for artists. On a regular basis young talents are invited to exhibit their works at the James. The artistic atmosphere can already be seen in the lobby: a sculpture that consists of a tower of colourful suitcases attracts all of the attention. The rooms are designed in the style of apartments, that explains the extra nooks for relaxed snacks. Some of the rooms have TV screens, iPod hi-fi systems, coffee tables and Eames designer chairs. For dinner you don't have to go out: at the Primehouse restaurant you'll be served recognized dry-aged steaks. Rather atypical for the US is the Jame's environmental commitment. Examples? Hotel information is printed on recycling paper, and the water from the taps is distilled three times. Rooms from 150 euros.

Robin Richman
Robin Richman and her eponymous store are firmly established in Chicago's fashion scene. Her story began in 1997 with a line of hand-knitted jumpers and the opening of her store in order to display them. Summer was coming and Robing realised that the demand for knitwear during the warm months is rather weak. Therefore she needed to expand her range of goods. She contacted friends such as fashion icon Marc Le Bihan and the girls from the label Antipast and from then on also sold designs by other designers. In contrast to other boutiques Robin Richman does not want to chase fast moving trends but represent a selection of continuous styles. Her shoes, dresses, jewellery and accessories are offbeat and sometimes eccentric, they testify to a great extent of imagination and sometimes have a bit of patina. Today Richman sells fashion by more than 70 brands in her store - unfortunately that doesn't leave much time for her own knitwear line.
