Looking for affordable GREAT eats in Chicago

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I will be spending three nights, two days in Chicago at the end of May and are hoping for some ideas for where to eat. We are both in our late-20's, love Italian and French cuisine, but can always go for something more ethnic/adventuresome. The timing isn't set either, so both weekend/weeknight options would be appreciated.

Dinners: entrées in the $10-$25 range and wine lists that include some good $20-$40 bottles.

Lunches: entrées under $15 and same as above for wine (What? I'm on vacation!)

Also, any thoughts on nice little bars/fun dives - both love beer and adore wine, so any place that's going to be good value and have interesting options is great.

Any other fun recommendations are welcome. I know I'd like to do the Art Inst, Hancock Bldg for drinks, and architecture boat tour. What are some fun/interesting neighborhoods to just walk around in?

Many thanks!
