I'm a big foodie from NYC visiting Chicago in a couple of weeks and I'm trying to find a great romantic restaurant to go to with a friend I haven't seen in a while. In NYC my favorite places are Gramercy Tavern, Lure, The Modern, and Allen and Delancey (for any of you out there who know both cities). We want somewhere really nice, but not break-the-bank. (Alinea, Charlie Trotter's and Spiaggia are a bit too expensive). I was thinking about Boka or possibly Perennial. Ideally I'd like to find a place that does a 3-4 course tasting for under $100 per person (not including wine). Type of cuisine is not important as long as it's tasty. Ambiance and great wine list are key. Any help MUCH appreciated.
