First timer to Chicago in need of bday dinner recs

Hi. This will be our first time to Chicago. I am attending a conference Nov 4-7, which is also over my birthday. My husband and I are looking for a place to go to celebrate. We are staying at the Hard Rock hotel, so we would like something easily accessible to there (willing to take transportation or walk aways, just nothing in the suburbs). We like all kind of foods and are trying to find a place that is unique to Chicago, but with excellent food.

I have been reading the boards and have picked out some choices. Where would you recommend I go between these places-

Blackbird
one sixty blue (new chef?)
Aigre Doux
MK

Or any other places that I have overlooked?

Thanks in advance!
