My boyfriend and I will be visiting Chicago next month and I want to surprise him with a romantic dinner at a French bistro or new American restaurant. I've searched all of the posts about romantic places, but none of the restaurants suggested seem to fit the bill. We don't want something too extravagant ($120 for 2 would be ideal), and just are looking for good food, a romantic dining room that hopefully is quiet and has somewhat private seating (I hate having to sit too close to another party), and is fairly accessible by cab from where we're staying in the North Loop.
If it's in a neighborhood where we can have a drink afterwords, that's even better.
Thanks in advance for your help!
p.s. Please don't recommend Geja or whatever that fondue place is that everyone raves about-- I'm not a fan of the whole fondue thing!
