Will be staying at the Embassy Suites at 5500 N. River Road in Rosemont this Thursday and Friday night on business and since I have never been to Chicago before and don't know anything about the area, was wondering if I could have dinner suggestions. (The hotel's Web site wasn't too helpful about what to expect in the area, and I trust Chowhound much more than any guide book I've read.)
1. Looking to spend about $30 for glass of wine, entree, and app or dessert, but would be willing to spend more on an especially noteworthy place.
2. Looking for a place within quick walking distance from the hotel, with special consideration for safety. (I'll be a female on her own. However, I'm from Boston, so I am familiar with what it's like to live in a major urban area.)
3. Looking for a place where I'll have no problem getting a table without reservations or sitting at the bar on a Thursday or Friday night.
4. Looking for a place where I can feel comfortable in nice jeans and sweater, since I don't plan on bringing any fancy clothes.
I eat pretty much anything if it's good and tend to stay away from chains unless I'm really desperate.\
Any info/suggestions would be very much appreciated!
