Yes/No to my researched list...this weekend

I've read through the posts for the Chicago Area, as well as doing some research on my own. I'm flying to Chicago to basically dine at Alinea Sunday night. But while I'm there, thought I'd look up some other fantastic places to eat.

I can only fit in four meals (assuming I'm not tempted by anything at "Taste of Chicago", and my ideas are:
2 Brunches: MHenry and Bongo Room
2 Dinners: Purple Pig and Alinea

So here are my question:
1) Sweet & Savories...dinner or brunch? Should I forgo one of the options and go to Sweet & Savories instead?
2) Is Purple Pig along the same concept as St. John's Bread & Wine in London?
3) Took Frontera Grill as a brunch option off the that a mistake?
4) Any other suggestions?

Thank you!
