Chicago birthday restaurant for locavore foodies aged 30 and 60 and their adult companions (six people total). Early evening Saturday, River North (or anywhere downtownish). GO!

We'd like a place that will let us linger a bit and enjoy each other's company. The 30-year-old, my brother, lives in Chicago right by Navy Pier and is culinarily trained. The 60-year-old, my mom, is a farmers' market devotee. My brother's girlfriend and I are more or less pescetarians, but everyone else eats meat.
Ideally, we're thinking of a place not quite as high-end as Everest or Tru, but still something of an experience. Maybe up to $100/person, including wine (we're not big lushes, but I'd love to get my mom tipsy :P).
We're probably looking at January 29 or later, so we have a *little* time to call ahead.
