Dining with Kids Suggestions

I have a 3 and 5 year old and live in the West Loop. We dine out a couple of times a week. Looking for some new suggestions for dining with them in the city. We normally would eat early as to not bother the later crowd that would rather not be seated next to the 3 and 5 year old - which I totally understand as I was in their shoes once. I am not looking for Rainforest and Ed's, but am not looking to take them to Sepia either. Something in between - say that we can get in and out with the four of us for under $75. Doesn't have to be downtown, but am looking for suggestions that would be no more than a 20 minute drive from downtown. Any parents out there have some good suggestions for this?

  1. There's a new upscale sports bar on N Orleans and W Kinzie called Brewstone that might fit the bill. I've been in once for drinks and apps after work and we all liked it. It's in the old Clay Oven spot so parking is a bit tough, but Kinzie and Kingsbury have good turnover at the time you're going.
