There are a lot of great spots at the Chicago Athletic Association, like The Game Room (a cocktail bar) and Cherry Circle Room, an upscale restaurant on the second floor. The main design elements are dark wood, overstuffed leather chairs, and a huge fireplace. It reminds us of a fancy turn-of-the-century lodge, and the rustic menu (with plenty of roasted meat) fits the ambiance.

Glenn's Diner & Seafood House
Glenn's Diner feels like a diner, but it specializes in simple seafood. They also have spaghetti and meatballs and a cereal bar. You'll like it.
Au Cheval in the West Loop has our favorite Chicago burger, but that’s not the only great thing on the menu.
