I have been tasked with finding a place for dinner for twelve of my colleagues, both Chicagoans and surbanites, on a Wednesday evening. We will be at an all-day meeting at the Omni Ambassador East (1400 North State) and something within walking distance would be ideal, but not required. Randolph street restaurants are also an option as many people will take Metra home.
Entree prices in the $15 - $20 range are ok.
The toughest part of the request is to find a place where we are not stuck at one long table that limits conversation. Is this possible? I'm thinking Cafe Iberico or Greektown as "safety" restaurants, would welcome suggestions. Thanks.
