For blues clubs, Buddy Guy's Legends is about a mile south. Note that they are moving next month. Details are on their website at www.buddyguy.com
I have nothing to add except a) I love chowhound for this exact reason and b) nxstasy, you're my hero. :-)
Staying at the Hyatt Regency in a few weeks for a work trip. Have a rezzie at Quartino -- can't stop going back! -- but I'm looking for other options. Thank you! Chowhounds FTW.

I've been to a couple of places I'd recommend within a few blocks of the Hyatt Regency since the post above. Sable, in the Hotel Palomar, offers delicious contemporary American cuisine from Chef Heather Terhune, as well as artisanal cocktails. Food prices are very reasonable and many items are available in small plates portions as well as full sizes. Don't miss the sweet corn creme brulee! www.sablechicago.com Cibo Matto, in the W Hotel, offers Italian cuisine with contemporary global influences.
