    Opera would be a good choice, or Gioco.

      Under $35 might be difficult at either of those.. possible, but not necessarily easy. I'd say expect more like $40-45/person after tax/tip.

      If you're willing to travel more, you can go to one of the open-late Greektown places. Santorini, one of my favorites, is open until 1am on weekends.

      Not sure of their late night hours, but what about the Chicago Firehouse? The food is unadventurous, but should appeal to a variety of tastes. And surely the old firehouse atmosphere would be an added plus?

        How about Melting Pot on Dearborn? Depending on what you order, you can keep the price down.

          The recommendation may be a bit late. If this was for a high school prom, those involved are probably graduating from college now - LOL!
