lincoln park places

I'm going to be 5 days in Chicago on vacation with my wife and 16 year old son. We're going to be staying in an apt. in Lincoln Park, and I'd like some advice about some good neighborhood spots. Hot dogs, pizza, a nice casual sit down meal, sandwiches, breakfast muffins (our favorites are Wayne's muffins in Stockholm). We're from San Francisco, and are interested in real local Chicago food. We like to walk, and would like to get to know our neighborhood through its food.
We'd also like one great steak dinner, location open. Gibson's? Chicago Chop House? Smith and Wollensky's? So many different opinions, it's hard to pick one---since it will be our only one. Well-aged, flavorful meat and outstanding sides (spinach, potatoes) are the main desiderata. Thanks for help...
