WHO Executive chef, Free Rein (224 N. Michigan Ave., 312.334.6700)

HOME ’HOOD North Park. “I love my surrounding parks, bike trails and mom-and-pop spots.”

GO-TO SPOT Ward Eight (629 Howard St., Evanston, 847.420.7353). “Cocktails that rival any upscale lounge downtown. My family go-to is Sun Wah BBQ (5039 N. Broadway, 773.769.1254) for its famous duck dinner.”

GRAND FALL PLANS “A girls’ trip to Montreal”

FALL FASHION ESSENTIAL “Anything cashmere”

CURRENT OBSESSION “I’m always discovering new everything: Leon Bridges, Anderson.Paak, the perfect bite of taco, the Sea Flower cocktail at Bar Kumiko (630 W. Lake St., 312.285.2912), the best sunglasses to fit my round face. I’ll be on the move for a while.”
