Recommendations for birthday dinner restaurant in Chicago

Champaign05 | Nov 4, 2009 04:43 PM

I would like to host a dinner for 8-10 people at a really nice restaurant in Chicago in January to celebrate by husband's 50th birthday. My budget is roughly $100-$125 per person, including wine. My choice was Topolobampo, but I can't get a reservation. I thought 2.5 months in advance would be enough! So now I am not sure at all. Does anyone have a recommendation for other restaurants to consider? My other thoughts are:
- Cafe des Architectes
- Coco Pazzo
- Le Bouchon
- one sixty blue
But I have not eaten at any of these and I want to make sure that the meal will be a good one, that the restaurant will be pretty and comfortable, and that the service will be good. I'm hoping that you'll all have some suggestions for me to consider. Thank you!
