Alinea Moto Avenues dress code? Similarly creative restaurants?

We're coming to Chicago in July from northern California, where suits and ties have all but disappeared from even the best restaurants. Do I need to bring a suit (or jacket and tie) to feel comfortable in restaurants like Alinea, Moto, and Avenues? Will they even let me in without a tie? Remembering what the weather can be like in Chicago in July, I can't even imagine putting on a suit, but I don't want to miss the very creative cuisine at these restaurants and will dress as the Hounds advise.

Also, are there other restaurants in Chicago serving equally creative food that I should consider?
