Our Chicago Plan: Critiques and SuggestionsWelcome!

Hi Chicago Hounds,

We're coming to Chicago in a week and have narrowed down our options for primarily lunches and dinners with a breakfast/brunch here and there.

We have a year old baby so we cannot go anywhere considered fine dining and/or super quiet (no Alinea, etc.). We're hoping to find Chicago gems that are simultaneously unique to Chicago and baby-friendly.

River North:

Downtown/Art Institute/Millenium Park:
Pastoral (lunch)
Publican (dinner)

Wicker Park/Bucktown:
Birchwood Kitchen (lunch)
Green Zebra (dinner)
Margie's Candies

Downtown/River Tour/Magnificent Mile:
Mr. Beef (lunch)
Frontera (dinner)

Lincoln Park/Old Town:
Hot Doug's (lunch)
Avec (dinner)
Green Market
Southport Grocery

Where would you take visitors in each of these neighborhoods. And the big question, which I know is complicated, where to go for pizza?

Thanks guys!
