Son's Birthday weekend - Next Fri/Sat in Chicago

JLH | Jul 9, 2010 04:39 AM

Looking for advice....We're New Yorkers and haven't been to Chicago in years . Our 23 year old non-foodie son has been in Chicago on a work assignment and we're visiting next weekend. We'd like to take him to a few places that he wouldn't get to (or pay for) on his own. Our only plans so far are an 11PM Second City show on Friday night. He's staying downtown and we won't have a car.

I've been checking out this board and if anyone can help me with 2 dinners a and a brunch suggestion I'd appreciate it. In addition, we're looking for a pizza place (he's been to Giordano's and doesn't love it) and a roast beef sandwich place as well.

His main food groups are chicken parm/spaghetti, crabcakes and ahi tuna. Also looking for places that take reservations, since patience is not one of his virtues.

We're (much) more adventurous and appreciative of a good/great restaurant- Any suggestions for places that would please the 3 of us?

Thanks in advance!!
