Avenues is closed - what now?

I am very excited to be visiting Chicago in July. We are planning it to focus quite a bit on food for this trip. I was planning on going to Avenues for the big dinner, but they are closed every day that we will be there. Now I have to pick another place. The problem is that we do not like fish. We like some seafood like shrimp and lobster though. This seems to be a problem at some of the high end restaurants with set menues. I am currently thinking that Spiaggia is my best bet, but I am driving myself crazy trying to figure what will be best. I have looked at Les Nomades but heard little about it in my research. Any suggestions besides steakhouses - we want to go to at least one top restaurant but we want it to work for our tastes. Are Alinea or Tru flexible with their set menus? I know that Tru has an a prix fixe menu, but is it a good value? Ok, enough questions. Thanks for any help that you can give.
