I'm a Boston Chow who will be visiting Chicago for a convention at McCormick Place in March. I know nothing about eating in Chicago. I will be taking a colleague out to dinner and need a recommendation for a nice place, with good food, maybe Italian or French, but nothing too avant garde, and not too noisy. A nice wine list would be good, too. I'd like to shoot for the price of dinner for 2 with wine to be ~$250 or less. A short cab ride or within walking distance if possible from the Hyatt Regency at McCormick Place would be nice. I may be asking for too much, but I thought I should give as many desired details as possible.
Thanks for the help!
