romantic dining on the North side of Chicago?

Bay Gelldawg | May 1, 2012 07:37 PM

I'm not familiar with Chicago at all. Will be visiting for two days and staying on the Magifiscent Mile (E. Ontario and Michigan Avenue). Can someone confirm that this is called the North Side? Should I be calling it something else?

Are there any romantic restaurants within walking distance? Ten blocks is not a problem. We will probably spend most if not all of the weekend in this part of town.

Most important is that the restaurant be quiet so we can talk without raising our voices. The quieter the better. Call me a grumpy old man, but nearly every restaurant I visit is too loud.

I know Charlie Trotter's is history, but I'll just use that as an example of a place I would probably not like. A three hour 15 course meal doesn't appeal to me. Other than that, I am open in terms of type of cuisine.
