My favorite restaurant in Chicago is Gibson's. It's a tradition steakhouse, but better than most. The deserts are huge and amazing, especially the ice cream pie. Be sure and make a reservation well in advance.

Petterino's - Italian. This is right in the theatre district. I cannot remember the street right now. Handmade pasta. While we were not going to the theatre, it did seem like they were working with patrons that needed to get to the theatre at a certain time. I would make a reservation.

Volare - Italian. This is just east of Michigan Ave and north of the river. Illinois and St Clair. Just a short walk from the theatre district. More handmade pasta and traditional dishes. I always make a reservation.

It’s been a few years, but my best meal was bavette’s. I’d seriously fly to Chicago just for that. I don’t know if I hit Gibson on an off night or something, but I wasn’t impressed.

i really liked Volare’s as well, but I don’t remember thinking “wow”. Good solid Italian though.

Because you are in Chicago, I would encourage some deep dish pizza. I like Giordano's and Gino's East, but everyone has their favorites. Not sure there are outlets super close to your area,but surely you'll be up north at some point. Also, for the same rationale (and cheap), consider a chicago dog and/or italian beef sandwiches. There are a ton of places for each. To cater to a variety of interests, I think the French Market is cool. Had a good Italian beef there, but they have a number of food vendors.
