Who is open for dinner on sunday night?

I am planning to take some client out in March on a Sunday night - but from what I remember, many restaurants in the downtown area are closed on Sunday night. Looking for fine dining, reliable service, good wine list - and most importantly, open for dinner sunday night. Looking for something unique to Chicago - Trotters, Tru, Frontera, and even Keefers is closed on Sundays. Prefer not to do the upscale chain steakhouses. Recommendations appreciated. Thanks.

  1. While many restaurants are closed on Sundays, many others are open. The discussion at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/378848 lists many of them. If you're looking for haute cuisine comparable to Charlie Trotter's and Tru - money no object, and fairly dressy (jackets appropriate for gentlemen) - consider Alinea, NoMI, Spiaggia, L2O, and Sixteen. If you'd prefer a place that's more in the mid-priced "casual fine dining" arena, consider North Pond, Custom House, Spring, Aria, Atwood Cafe, Mercat a la Planxa, MK, or Sweets and Savories. Any of these is an appropriate place to entertain a client, and all are open on Sunday evenings.
