my wife and I are in Chicago this weekend with our baby. We have a 2-hour window where we have a babysitter Saturday night. What places are in the area that we can go round trip in 2 hours and which provide great food. "vibe" is not that important to us (and great vibe places we probably can't reserve this late anyways)
no limit on budget. However, my wife doesn't eat meat out so fish choices, Italian choices, vegetarian choices are key.
I've done Rick Bayless restos so those are out.
