a good friend and I are parting ways for the summer and we'll be looking to have a nice dinner with some sun shining over us while we have a bite to eat. Location really isn't that much of a concern, but it would be helpful to be near subway/University loop as we will be going out for a night of dancing later on. No holds barred in terms of food type, save for sushi (saltwater fish allergy) and the price can be flexible (but not outrageous please...). Atmosphere can be busy or quite, no real preference.
Bonus points for either a decent Beer selection, or some delicious specialty cocktails.
Thanks for any help provided.
