Last minute solo diner request...

Hi everyone,
NYC hound here. I just found out that I'm flying to Chicago tonight for a 2 day job. I have never been to Chicago and I'll try not to sound like the tourists who post things like "Where should we eat in NY, NY?" Obviously there are countless great options but here are some specifics:

--I'm very interested in places that source good ingredients either locally or from quality producers
--I'll be eating alone
--Not looking for stuffy or too upscale though I can go anywhere for food that's special and worth the cost
--I want to avoid places that only offer tasting menus. Too many of those here in NYC and I'm not sure I'll have more than a couple hours
--I'm also interested in local beers and breweries.

Thanks in advance for your help!
