Hello, I know this is a faux pas not to be doing more research, but any suggestions for a fun work dinner in this area? I am staying at the James and my colleagues are staying near the Macys (former Marshall Fields).
I don't know the city at all, so don't even know the name of the area.
1) not a steakhouse
2) fun place that is hip and lively enough, but with good food. doesn't need to be sushi, but with an emphasis on fish and / or offer raw oysters or any kind of raw fish (tartare, crudo, etc.).
3) nice enough to be treating an account, but not stuffy or uptight
I'm pretty open on cuisine. I tend towards ethnic. And like pretty much everything but French and Italian.
Thanks very much!
