Coming in from out of town with someone on a first date. She's vegetarian. Will have about 2 hours or so for dinner. Staying at the Allerton on the Mag Mile (no snarky comments please) and going to hear Kurt Elling at the Green Mill in Uptown, want to be there by about 7:45 to have a chance at getting a seat. I was thinking about something not too far from the hotel, like Coco Pazzo Cafe, maybe Iberico (though it's noisy). I know there aren't many choices in Uptown. Was going to take the train, so maybe Lincoln Park would be better??
Anyone else have some ideas?
