dinner with the parents

Lisa Simpson | May 14, 201501:28 PM

Hello -- Bay Area hound heading to Chicago next month to visit my parents, and I'm looking for a place to take them to dinner that has great food and a friendly atmosphere.

Last year I took them to Girl and the Goat, which we all enjoyed. I'd glady go there again, but it was too loud for them. Both are relatively adventuresome in a European way -- as in, offal/parts are good, but non-Western cuisine, not so much. (Non-Western influences ok).

Any suggestions for something yummy but not too noisy? During a separate trip I ate at the Gage, which I liked, and The Publican, which had great food but a chilly vibe that makes me not want to go back.

Suburbs are ok, too, if there's anything good out there -- they live in Skokie.
