Regional Mexican restaurants

My husband and I are coming to visiting Chicago this weekend. We're particularly interested in trying any unusual Mexican restaurants, especially from regions that we're relatively unfamiliar with.

Where we've been: We've been to Frontera Grill, and liked the food, but aren't particularly motivated to go back. We might hit Xoco for a casual lunch.

What we've had before: We've had a lot of Sonoran, Oaxacan, DF (Mexico City) Mexican before, so are not looking for recs from those regions unless they're truly outstanding. Xni Pec would have been perfect (we haven't tried much from the Yucatan), but sadly it looks like they're permanently closed.

Where we're thinking about going: Cemitas Pueblas, possibly Xoco, and Chilam Balam (looks like an appealing Mexican-inspired small plates menu).

Where we're staying/transportation issues: Our hotel is on the Miracle Mile. We're relying on public transit, but might take a cab for something out-of-the-way and spectacular.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
