Dinner in Chicago for one night

banjolinana | Feb 7, 2007 12:05 PM

This is so lame but I'm actually born and raised on the North Shore of Chicago. But having gone to school out east for college and then moving to NY right after, I rarely get the opportunity to enjoy what Chicago has to offer. I'm excited. New York has great restaurants and some of the top chefs and i'm ready to try some from Chicago.

I'm in town visiting family next weekend and would like an amazing meal paired with cool ambience and people if possible in the city-downtown area. Lincoln Park, the Loop, etc. Can anyone recommend? Last time i was there i went to Japonais and the thought the meal was average at best.

All suggestions welcome!
