Recommendations needed for non chain, Chicago eats and drinks for a visit

Hi Chicago Chowhounders!!

I'm planning a visit to Chicago, and I'm looking for recommendations for excellent food and drink venues, near(ish) the Loop. If we need to hop on the CTA or grab a taxi , that's fine but no suburbs please.

What are your favorite places to eat for breakfast/brunch and dinner? What is your favorite bar? Looking for unique places that are moderately priced. We are a group of hot(!) women in our 30s so we aren't looking to be surrounded by kids in their 20s. So a slightly older crowd for bar recommendations, if possible. Mixed crowd of all ages - also great.

And I hear the Girl and the Goat has a 2-3 month waiting period, so if a place is *that* hard to get in, it probably won't work.

Also, women any good mani/pedi place recommendations?

Can't wait to visit your city! And thanks for the help.
