I'm heading to Chicago to visit some friends, and I'm trying to find a good, interesting place to thank them for letting me stay at their place. I'd like to find a place with entrees in the high teens/low twenties. As far as the type of atmosphere and food, I definitely do not want anywhere too stuffy, and I'd like the food to be interesting and different. We like all kinds of cuisine, but I'd like to stay away from traditional Italian (coming from New York, I'm kind of sick of most Italian...unless there's a twist, of course). Can anyone make any recommendations? I hope I've given you enough information.
