Looking for what I would describe as an upscale Bistro for dinner with a friend. Something like Bouchon, Grammercy Tavern or Gotham Bar and Grill. Ideal location would be something relatively convenient to River North or the Loop, but we areI willing to travel. I like Crofton and MK, but have been to both places recently. North Pond is terrific, but maybe a bit more "special event" than we need. I've tried The Gage and Henri -- close to what I'm looking for, but anything new/better?
