I Think I've Exhausted most "casual fine dining" in Chicago! Need new ideas...

Although I feel very fortunate to be able to (almost) claim this, I really need some ideas! We have visitors coming to town in a few weeks and I'm at a complete loss for dinner ideas for them (they've also tried some of the top tables in town)...

I wold love for something new (for both nights) and have already tried such places as: North Pond, Cafe Spiaggia, Spiaggia, Custom House, Aigre Doux, Sepia, Spring, Green Zebra, Everest, Les Nomades, MK, Kevin, Chalkboard, Bistro Campagne, Frontera Grill/Topolo, etc., to name a few...

Is there anything really new - and excellent - out there that I may be overlooking or do not know about? Exceptions will have to include Alinea, Tru, Trotter's, etc... not looking for something THAT over the top this time around. Most types of food welcome, although the genre of "contemporary American," etc., is probably preferred. To make it easier, I would probably steer away from Thai, Greek, Mexican, and/or Chinese.

Please help! TIA...
