I'll be in town on business in a week or so and I'm looking for a unique chowish experience, price is no object, but I'll be on my own, so it would need to be the kind of place where a single diner wouldn't feel uncomfortable.
In terms of food, I would be up for anything. I've dined many times in Chicago and had great experiences at Frontera Grill, Gibsons, etc. Good wine or a great mixed drink would not be unwelcome. I'm staying downtown, but I'm not opposed to heading to another neighborhood for a good experience.
Any thoughts would be very welcome!
