I'm new to Chicago and have spent most of my time in the city on the north side, though I've moved out to Oak Park at this point. If Oak Park isn't considered part of Chicago, then I would say Wicker Park or Bucktown for the food scene and the more laid back vibe.
I work full time, sometimes just north of the loop, sometimes in Edgewater, sometimes in Irving Park. Work is flexible and so am I.
The only one I've been to besides Starbucks is La Colombe. It was awesome, but I wouldn't call myself an expert.
