Visiting Chicago from Memphis at end of July. Going out to dinner before heading to Second City in Old Town to see the late show of "From Fear to Eternity" (for a second time). Need recommendations for Friday night group of eight, $10-$30 per person, any cuisine acceptable. Seems like mostly pubs/bars in the area. Would prefer an actual restaurant. Thanks for any help.
Recommendations for the rest of the weekend are also welcome, although I already plan on stopping by Phoenix or Three Happiness for dim sum. Staying at the Hyatt Regency on East Wacker near Navy Pier.
