need quality rec for great food and ambiance

CelesteSF | Sep 26, 2002 03:18 PM

hello all,

i'm a sf chowhound coming to chicago for several days... i LOVE food but can pass on uber-hipness as well as over-stuffiness, especially since I am bringing my boyfriend who really gets annoyed with that kind of ambiance on either side of spectrum.

sooooo.... what restaurant has the best combo of fantastic food with a comfortable ambiance? i see there aren't many trotter fans here and it seems the ambiance there migiht be a little stressful... mk and spring seem like they are too too on the ultra-modern hip scene... naha seems to get mixed reviews here. i don't think we can trek up to trio and i think a 20 course meal is more than we are looking for.

but i am looking to be very impressed!!! Any ideas based on this criteria?
