Bite to eat before 4th of July Fireworks

My bf and I will be in town for the Fourth of July weekend and will likely try to check out the fireworks. Does anyone have suggestions for a good place to grab a bite before and a place for drinks afterward? We're pretty adventurous eaters and like to visit places off the beaten path or not typical tourist joints.

Any suggestions for a good place to view the fireworks without having to fight the crowds at Navy Pier, if that's even possible, would be appreciated too!
