A friend of mine and I will be down exploring the business school at the University of Chicago on Saturday afternoon, and we're looking to finish with a nice meal. I'm a Hyde Park neophyte, so any and all suggestions are appreciated.
Favorite downtown/Northside restaurants include Avec, Publican, and all of Shawn McClain's restaurants; local is always a plus; and we're fine with up- or down-market spots, though nice atmosphere is appreciated -- I'm trying to prove a point on Hyde Park's cultural/culinary attractiveness.
As always, thank you !!
