Chicagofilter: We are staying at the Palmer House. Where should we eat Saturday night prior to the Chicago marathon that is within walking distance?

My fiance and I are heading to Chicago Friday night and staying at the Palmer House. Before running the marathon, we obviously want to load up on some protein + carbs on both Friday and Saturday night! (I have a superstition that the food one eats two nights prior to a marathon is most crucial. Arguing will get you nowhere).
We'll get in late on Friday, so we'll play that by ear (and I remember there is an awesome bar/restaurant a couple of doors down that will do it.)
But for Saturday evening, where should we eat that is close, delicious, and memorable? No price problem, though we don't want to have to wear formal/cocktail attire. I have checked out the Chicago restaurant threads, but this one is quite specific and I have a feeling there will be, um, one or two other people trying to do the same thing that weekend. Thanks for any suggestions.
Also, we are hanging out Saturday, Sunday afternoon after the marathon, and part of the day Monday - anything we shouldn't miss? Any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks y'all, and I'll let you know if I win.
