Back for a visit -- new places to try?

Hi Chowhounds,

Former Chicago resident (left in 2008) who will be back for a vacation over the holidays. I'll be visiting some of my old favorites - Hot Doug's (straight from ORD since he closes the 23rd!), Pequod's/Burts, Publican/Blackbird/Avec, Irazu (Oatmeal-Mamey shake!), Sultan's - as well as trying some places I never got around to when I lived here (Calumet Fisheries, Al's Beef), but I'd like to fit in a couple new places (meals, snacks & beverages) as well. I'll be splurging on Alinea, so I'd like to keep the rest of my dining choices $-$$ish.

Currently considering:
Fat Rice
Honey Butter Fried Chicken
Longman & Eagle (& Sunday Donut shop?)
Au Cheval
Hoosier Mama Pie Co.

What do you think of these options, and/or are there any other new-ish places that you'd consider must-eats?

Thanks in advance!
