Chicago recs

elheffe1 | Apr 18, 2013 05:25 AM

My wife and I will be visiting Chicago in a few weeks for the first time. I'm not familiar with the restaurant scene at all, so basically I'm a blank slate. Looking for dinner, lunch and interesting places for a drink and some nosh.
I love Italian and am partial to independent restaurants where the focus is squarely on the food, but has a cool scene as well. As a point of reference, when we visit New York we like places like Lupa, Osteria Morini and Stanton Social.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
