I'm coming to Chicago from New Orleans on business this week, and I'm staying at a Marriot at 165 East Ontario street downtown. I've got to make reservations for dinner Thursday night for four, and hopefully near the hotel.
My past experiences in Chicago include Alinea, which was spectacular, but definitely not what I'm looking for on this occasion. I'd like to eat well, but in a place we can actually talk work.
I'd really appreciate some suggestions. Price is not all that much of an object, as I suppose I'll be reimbursed, but ideally around $125 or less per person for food would be great. I know it's a little late to make reservations for Thursday night, but we can dine early; very early.
Thanks in advance. I freaking love Chicago, and I wish I had more time to spend on this trip. I'm staying over Friday night to have dinner with some friends, and flying out on Saturday afternoon.
This, of course, assumes that the weather allows me to travel in the first place.
