Spouse and I will be in for three weekdays just before Xmas. Staying on the Mile but don't mind a reasonable cab ride. Seeking favorite lunch recs, dinner recs, best high tea and jazz. Would especially welcome suggestions for ethnic and others (no fish or German) not usually done well in heartland, but done very well in Chicago. Not looking for the most expensive refined dining experience, but rather memorable (not noisy) dining experiences and good value.
