I am going to be in Chicago on Sunday evening; too late for a reservation at Blackbird. So ... Chowhounders, what's the next best thing (or two) these days for Sunday evening dinner?

    Many good choices. Here are some ideas sto get you started. Some are in the "downtown" central part of the city; some are in neighborhoods a cab ride away.
    Naha
    North Pond
    Sola
    Cafe Spiaggia
    Takashi
    Spring
    Sweets and Savories
    Mercat a La Planxa
    MK

      Thanks for the ideas. Right now, I have a reservation at Graham Elliott for Sunday night. Based on some research, Tribune review was strong, seemingly mixed reviews on the board here. "Chigail" has some great suggestions -- all interesting. Is Graham Elliott's worth the buzz??

        For Sunday night dinner downtown, Custom House is always great.
