Trendy/Scene w/ Great Food

Looking for a Friday night restaurant with good food and even better scene to impress out-of-town twenty-something guest in river north/lincoln park/wicker park areas. Contemplated Japonais, but have been there a number of times so seeking to maybe do something different. Went to Sepia last week, and while good scene, about half of the dishes my party had were just average. Have never eaten in the upstairs lounge portion of Mirai - too smoky or acceptable for dining? What about Aigre Dioux (haven't been) - fun enough for 20somethings or too stuffy? Blackbird, Otom, Spring? Suggestions?
