Planning a Chicago trip, need recs

Thanks for the ideas, really appreciate it!

Yeah it sucks many of those places don't take reservations. I looked at Purple Pig and am thinking about checking it out. I will be staying on the mag mile, but will be able to travel around the majority of the city. As far as GATG, my friends have had luck getting reservations through the amex concierge, but I haven't talked to them yet. Also might just do a lunch at Xoco for the mexican fix, then possibly brunch of Meli's.

Hey guys, it's been a year since I've been to the city and it seems st there are a ton of new restaurants to check out! We're a group of mid 20 year olds who love good food and drinking. We've got thurs-mon.

I was thinking pizza (Lou's), big star, girl and goat, gilt bar, xoco or frontera, Avec, sushi (samba or sunda?), tapas (iberico?)

Obviously can't do all those but just some options I was thinking of. Any other spots you guys recommend? Looking for somewhere a little loud and not stuffy/stuck up. Lots of drinks too :)
