North Loop dinner options

MSP foodie will be in Chicago in mid-Sept for a week. Staying at Hotel Allegro in the North Loop area. Sunday night plan is to meet some college friends and catch up. Something nice but reasonable and not too loud so we can chat and catch up. Not keen on sushi or French. Willing to take a cab if needed.

Also looking for other recommendations for the remainder of the week- some nights may be multiple people from work. Typically like to try an Italian place and fish/seafood another night. Rest are up for grabs. Any great neighborhood joints? if places within walking distance- great. If not, a cab ride is fine too.
