Need recos for downtown Chicago near Allegro Hotel

Hi, all, this question may look familiar to some, as I posted one similar last year and got great suggestions (several of which I took advantage of, and you steered me well!

This year, the budget is tighter. I"m looking for a good recommendation where (hopefully) we can get a well-made entree in the $12-18 range that can accomodate a party of 12. These are work colleagues on a per diem of $42 for the entire day (yes, that's right - breakfast, lunch and dinner total not to exceed $42). Looking for a casual atmosphere where jeans will be ok, but an atmosphere appropriate for professionals in their 30's-upper 40's. Dinner will be this coming Tuesday evening.

Anyone have just the perfect spot come to mind?

  1. Your best bet may be a restaurant in Greektown, such as Greek Islands. That will fit your price point and is not far from the Allegro.
