help a ny chowhound going to chi town for the first time

my first foray onto the non NYC chowhound boards

So i'm being sent to Chicago for business, I've never been in this city but want to taste the best of the areas I'll be in.

I'll be working close to Sears Tower and my hotel is the Westin on N Michigan (gold coast area?). I don't know the city well at all so recommendations on anything within walking distance to any of those areas would be great. Or a short bus/train ride..nothing too far . Dinner specifically....

I get a daily allowance of like ~$50/60 per night for dinner but hell since I'm not paying for hotel I would not mind adding a bit of my own cash to eat the great things. I'm open to anything and unfortunately may be eating dinner alone some of these nights.

Thank you all in advance
