Help! Dinner for 8 near South Loop TONIGHT

Hi All!

Ive suddenly been tasked with finding a reservation for 8 people....tonight. We're here on a work trip from NY and, well, my boss doesnt plan well. We're staying in the south loop, but are okay with cabs, as long as it's not too far. Unfortunately, the restaurants I know and would like to hit (girl and a goat, purple pig, publican, mercat, etc) arent options for a group this size on this short notice..

So I turn to you! Please help? SUggestions nearby that are GOOD and we have a chance of getting into. As it's a work trip, price point isnt as important....

NYC Foodies in town for Bachelorette Weekend

Thank you! I think Le Bremner also has a 6-person cap on their reservations, but I will definitely check out the others!

Thanks, Im getting that Idea now... What about the others?

Let me start by saying that all I'm looking for is good food! Yes, I realize it's a bachelorette party, but we don't need a crazy, clubby restaurant (were too old for that)....just good food, good drinks and a fun atmosphere.

There will be 10 of us in town for 2 nights (fri-sat) in April. We'll be staying in Old Montreal (I think?) but will travel for food! I think we'd want to stay away from overly stuffy restaurants, but other than that, we're open to it all! We eat anything!

The bride very much wanted to go to Garde Manger, unfortunately our group is too large. We've also heard good things about Piede de Cochon and Gibby's. Of course I know of Joe Beef and a quick perusal of the other boards has me thinking about DNA.

But experts, help me please!

I need suggestions for:

1 awesome restaurant for Saturday night
A different, fun, (maybe more casual, but equally delicious) restaurant for Friday night
Casual, delicious lunch recs for friday and saturday afternoons
Bonus points for 1-2 amazing brunch places!!

Thank you so much in advance!
