*CHICAGO FILTER* My shy, relatively new boyfriend is meeting my mom for the first time while she is in town. Whats a low key hip spot to go for dinner & drinks.

I'm not really worried about it being that weird as my mom is super cool, I'm just having a hard time finding a place to go. I would like to avoid extremely touristy places and nothing way too fancy. Also, the louder the better to avoid potential awkward silence.
Any type of food is fine as long as they have a decent drink menu. I'm new to the Chicago area and want to pick a more "locals only" kinda place!
I'd prefer a place that takes reservations, too!
(possibly unnecessary background info: we're in our 20s, try to be trendy, both more "artsy" types. Haha)
