Low-key dinner downtown

I’ll be in Chicago next week and looking for moderately priced bar and grill type places (or anywhere similarly low-key … can be Asian, Mexican, etc.) where I can relax after a long day at the convention center and perhaps eat at the bar. I’d like to be within walking distance of the Harrison Street el stop (but I’m from NY – “walking distance” can be a mile or so), and I’ll be myself so I’d like to avoid anywhere that’s a “scene” or where I’ll feel out of place eating alone. Unassuming, laidback, delicious – I think that about sums it up.

Thanks in advance!
