Recently moved to Chicago and currently planning girlfriend's 30th birthday in December. Got Friday tickets to opera and need advice on where to go before the show for a tasty, romantic dinner not terribly far from the Lyric Opera in the Loop. Looking for somewhere with a good atmosphere, not too chic or pretentious, but definitely nice and memorable. We eat everything (except for maybe chicken feet). And as long as it's not Jimmy John's, I'm open to suggestions!
