the rick bayless places are really appealing to me. still good? is one better than the others?
I'll be eating with someone who is incapable of looking formal, so grace is out unless it's more like ko or bianca than chevallier.
anything else? should I just take a cab to munster?

go to Kuma Korner and drink some Three Floyds Zombie Dust and listen to some awesome music.. You can always do that after dinner too for a late night burger.. The girl and the goat is a fun place, especially if you can sit at the grill.. Is Alinea out of the picture?

I've been wanting to go to Fat Rice for the longest time but, don't have anyone to go with and Alicia won't let me use tinder.

I haven't been to a Bayless place in years but I doubt they've become bad. The current Frontera Grill menu looks appealing and it's a casual place.
My opinions are obviously my personal opinions. Not yours. Not universal.

thanks. I think I inadvertently did this the time they picked up.
Call Schwa in the early afternoon. Allow phone to ring a few times. Hang up and immediately call back.

Our favorites are Joe's seafood, prime steak and stone crab, bub city (bbq and live music), and RPM steak. Sadly they closed Paris Club in January to go with an Italian theme. Paris Club was our favorite.

I liked Little Goat when I was in Chicago a couple of years ago. Fun to sit at the counter, like at a diner. Also like a diner, the menu is all over the map, and people were ordering lots, little, whatever they felt like. The fried chicken was good, and enough to be breakfast the next day a well.
Other places I went to then were good, but fancier and/or more expensive without necessarily being more fun or better food. Never have been to Kuma's Korner, but would love to try it.
