Touristy (cringe) evening walk and dinner

Hey 'hounds,

I'm fairly new to Chicago, so please forgive the ignorance...

I'll be taking a guest (we're both originally from NYC) for a low-key night out; ideally, we'd take a walk before/after dinner on Michigan Ave. - I was hoping to do either Millenium or Grant Park, though I don't know how Buckingham Fountain looks at night/whether it's close to any good dining spots.

Some parameters to help narrow it down:
- We're definitely on a budget, hoping to keep it around $40 max per person (not including drinks)
- Not formal (though that shouldn't be too much of a problem, given our budget...), and we don't mind places that are loud - but definitely a cut above bars and burgers. A little ambience would be nice.
- Any cuisine besides Asian, pizza/hot dogs/etc.

I've done some searching on the board, and so far Grand Lux Cafe and Bandera seem to fit - with Cafe Spiaggia and Bistro 110 as maybes - but I'd really appreciate any opinions, updates, recommendations...thanks in advance!
