Recommendations for Chicago

Brian | Oct 10, 200504:51 PM

I'm overwhelmed when I look for recommendations on restaurants, so I find myself here. A colleague and I will be in town for a night and just want to get a good meal in a good atmosphere, and we don't want to leave hungry. We currently have reservations at Blackbird, but I am concerned about some of the reviews (crowded, confined, and small portions).

Can anyone recommend just a good restaurant for good food and good portions? I've read about Blackbird, Frontera Grill, Charlie Trotter's, etc. (which IS too expensive), but fear I'm reading about the "fruh-fruh" places and not just a good Chicago restaurant, which may be missing from the internet reviews.

We are staying at the Sheraton Towers, so preferably something in that area.

Thanks in advance.
