Chicago advice

Hi all,

My wife and I come to Chicago once a year, and eating out is our favorite activity. Have been to Alinea, Bayless's places, and some others. We were looking at lots of places -- Schwa, Sprout, El Ideas, Graham Elliot, L20 -- and we just don't feel like spending another $300 on one of these concept places. No doubt they are amazing, but we are looking for something more reasonable and laid back. We had lunch at Xoco last time and loved it. That's the kind of place we prefer now -- not fancy, not expensive, but a damned good sandwich, more satisfying than any course at Alinea. Quartino's is another one we like. Any recommendations for dinner would be much appreciated. Thanks!
