I need some help from Chowhounders in Chicago.
At the end of April I will be hosting two days of business meetings. It will be a group of 7 people and we'll be staying at the Blackstone at 636 South Michigan Avenue.
Here's my question: where can I take this group for a killer dinner in that general area of town? Should be fairly close to the hotel, I think (but I am open to suggestion). I'd like to have some fun but also am interested in really good food and service. This is a sports coat and khaki crowd that would likely enjoy a good night out.
Any thoughts here? Anything come to mind?
