Need a Great Place to Eat near the Blackstone Hotel -

I will have a group of 8 people attending some meetings in Chicago at the Blackstone Hotel at 636 South Michigan avenue. Last time we did this, based on recommendations on this board, we ate at Mercat a la Planxa and loved it.

I am thinking I'd like to try a different spot around the hotel or somewhere on the Miracle Mile. Can you recommend some spots? I am not too concerned about budget and open to most food types.
