Looking for a place to eat at about 9:30 pm in a few weeks, (Loop, River North, West Loop). Should be moderately priced (entrees about $25), with a good selection of wine & beer (don't care about mixed drinks). Also, does not need to be hush-hush quiet, but cannot be conversationally-challenging either. Old friends, getting together and we want to talk.
Currently leaning towards Belly Q, Farmhouse Tavern, or Quartino. Would welcome your thoughts as to each, or alternative candidates.
