Sweet 16 Trip w/Mom & Dad

For our daughter's 16th b-day we're taking her to Chicago. We're staying near Mag Mile - rented a condo on E, Huron. Here's what our schedule looks like so, I;d appreciate rec's around places we'll be plus she is a huge carnivore so a steakhouse is a must one night.

Arrive Sunday around 3:00
Dinner - Deep Dish - I know this is touchy, everyone has there favorites. I can say this no Gino's East. We liked Lou Malnati's, but is there a better one?

Lunch - Possiby Chicago Food Planet Walking Tour - Bucktown/Wicker Park

Dinner - open,
Plan to go to Second City

Tuesday - She LOVES Ferris Bueller's Day off - so we thought it might be fun to make a day out of paying homage to her favorite flick. Places i think we'll visit Sears Tower, Chicago Stock Exchange, and plan to do the Architecture Boat Tour so need lunch rec somewhere near the vicinity.
Lunch - need suggestions
Dinner - Steakhouse - which would you pick: Rosebud or Gibson's? Open to other suggestions as well.

Wednesday - morning visit to Northwestern (working in a colleg visit)
lunch - need rec.
