NYC foodie needs a great Chicago lunch spot

Hi all!

I'm coming to Chicago this weekend for a wedding and have time to squeeze in two lunches (Fri and Sat).

Friday we're headed to Frontera Grill, which I'm super excited about. Cuisine wise, do people like this more, the same, or less than Topolo? Frontera had a better reservation time, which is why we went for it.

Saturday is still open. I wanted to head out to see the Frank Lloyd Wright house in the AM -- are there any places out there worth eating? Otherwise, I figured I'd eat somewhere close to the hotel, which is the Elysian. I'd love to anything American (nouveau, traditional), Fusion, French, etc. No Japanese, Italian, or Mexican, since I'm getting those elsewhere. My only real stipulation is that it be an awesome meal and price isn't too much of a concern. HOWEVER, I may be eating by myself, so no place where it might be super awkward to sit alone, haha.
