Need recs for 3 group dinners

I will be in Chicago with a group August 18-20. We're staying at the Hotel Burnham at Washington & State. There will be about 15 of us.

I am looking for 3 restaurants for dinner, preferably within walking distance. I'd like to keep entrees around $20, though I could go higher one night if I can balance it with something less expensive another night. We don't need a separate room, though it would be fine if that is where we were sat.

  1. 20s is kind of tough in that part of town if you want to avoid chains.

    Frontera Grill - Most entrees in the low 20s.

    The Gage (on Michigan)

    Quartinos (on State)

    1. Trattoria No. 10 is a couple blocks from the Burnham, and most of the entrees are in the $20 range. They have a number of alcoves that would nicley accomodate a group of 15.

      1. The Atwood Cafe in your hotel is another choice. The entrees are btw $19 and $33.

        1. Also checkout Rhapsody, altho the entrees might be in the upper range of the $20s.

          If you want to save a few bucks, you might try Miller's Pub, an enjoyable retro steak/hamburger/ribs joint that goes back a long way, offering many entrees under $20.

          1. I know a lot of people don't care for Rosebud, but I have had good experiences. There's one near your hotel, and virtually everything is under $20.
