I don’t know my Chicago geography that well so this may be too far west but I had dinner this summer at Meson Sabika which is a tapas restaurant in Naperville.  It’s a restaurant which is a mansion built in 1847 – beautiful and great food.  Next door on the property is another building called the Pavillion.  Receptions can be in the mansion or the Pavillion.  There happened to be a reception at the Pavillion when we were at the restaurant.  It looked beautiful – lots of glass picture windows – would be a pretty room in any season: http://www.mesonsabika.com/mesonsabika/weddings.html

I’m from Bourbonnais, about an hour or so south of Chicago. Not sure how this would work with your location parameters but I would have LOVE to have had my reception at the Brookfield Zoo. Talk about unique! http://www.czs.org/czs/Brookfield/Catered-Events/Weddings/Wedding_Package_Offerings It sounds fairly reasonable…taking all things into consideration! They include pretty much EVERYTHING, including wedding cake and drinks in your meal price! Their prices are between $70 and $90 per person, but like I said, that’s everything! Here is an excerpt from their wedding packet off of their website:
