NYC Hound in Town

i'll be in chicago next weekend and need advice on where to take my parents, brother and girlfriend. they will be staying in the loop area, and I in wicker park. there are 6 of us.

we'll (we = me) will eat any kind of food. i'm seeking a chicago restaurant that is relatively new (2 years or less?), mid priced ($50/person plus wine?), in downtowny area (not suburbs), and astonishingly good. it's even ok if it is trendy - i find these atmospheres in chicago pretty comical and fun.

let me preface what i am about to say by proclaiming my love for chicago. now: i have a jillion choices of great restaurants in NYC, so i am a bit spoiled. i really really want to find something in chicago that will allow me to compare favorably to some of my NYC faves.

any advice will be much appreciated. thanks.
