What's new in Chicago?

I lived in Chicago for years and generally come back pretty often, but somehow it's been over a year since my last visit. What new/newish restaurants, bars, and attractions — new within the last, say, 18 months — should be at the top of my to-do list on my upcoming trip? [more inside]

Where should I take my parents to eat in Chicago?

My parents are coming to visit in Chicago and I'm trying to think of restaurants to take them. Doesn't have to be fancy, but they're in their mid-50s and 60s so nothing divey. They're not into ethnic food (although Thai is ok) and nothing super spicy. [more inside]

Chicago Filter : Where should we stay? What should we do?

My SO and I are planning a long weekend trip up to Chicago with another couple in the fall. Wondering about the places to stay and things to do. We will most likely be driving so we'll have a car to get around town, so where we stay doesn't neccesarily have to be in the hub of all the touristy crap that we'll no doubt want to do at some point. I'm more concerned about other things. Details inside. [more inside]

Where should we eat?

Yet another Chicago restaurant suggestion needed: 5 adults, 2 of whom's flight is coming in this evening and we want to give them a special "Chicago" experience. Preferably in the Loop? I live in Rogers Park and we don't want to have to go running all over the city. We will probably go straight from the airport to the restaurant. I'm also looking for a nice place to have brunch tomorrow near the Palace theater downtown. Have any thoughts? [more inside]

Food before Folk

My friend and I are going to see Robyn Hitchcock at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago tomorrow night, and I'm looking for recommendations for restaurants near the venue (4544 N. Lincoln ave). We're up for all sorts of food, nothing too cheap but nothing godawful expensive either. With those amazingly broad guidelines, does anyone have any favorite eateries in that area?
