I will be going in June to Chicago for 4 nights.
We live in Texas, I am an architect and my husband and I are foodies (although we try to keep the dining prices in the reasonable range).
I have not been to Chicago for 30 years! and am not familiar with any of the restaurants.
We will be staying in the Gold Coast area, will not have a car.
We would like to go “Chicago” restaurants, we eat about 7 pm, would like to be able to talk (lively is fine, but extremely noisy is not), would like to make reservations, not wait in line.
Love all kinds of food, especially seafood. (Shaws Crab House looks very good).
$125 - $170 is a normal vacation dinner for us for 2 people with a bottle of wine, 2 apps and 2 entrees.
Looking for a dining itinerary to include the loop, north of the loop up to Gold Coast. If there is a restaurant that we just can’t miss, I don’t mind taking a cab to another area.
Below is our tour itinerary.
Can you give me suggestions for these areas for lunch and dinner??

Friday dinner – north of river
Saturday lunch – Oak Park tour
