I'm originally from Chicago, but have been away for several years living in Las Vegas and most recently Toronto. I'm coming back with my GF for the weekend and would like to go out somewhere great Sunday night, not too "stuffy" but a great ambience, good food and wine and in a neighbourhood where we could go to a bar afterwards or a club for some drinks, etc.
Some ideas I've had are. I'm by no means constrained to these though, and not sure I'm crazy that any of these would really leave us in a great area for going out afterwards. Any ideas???
