We are going to see a concert at the Chicago Theater in two weeks. Looking for a place in the general vicinity to grab dinner and drinks before the show. Having said that, we are willing to jump in a cab if need be.
We would like a casual, fun place with good food in a "bar-ish" atmosphere. We will be drinking mass amounts of alcohol, so good beer/cocktail menu is preferred.
My initial thought was The Publican.
We are also looking for a casual place for a more formal dinner on Sunday (as compared to standing at a bar table at the Publican sucking down oysters and pork rinds). $100 per person max.
I was thinking Naha initially. Any place in the city is fine...but nothing more formal than Naha.
Thanks in advance!
