Someone said DMK, but also their sister restaurant Fish Bar if you like seafood.
Kuma's / Kuma's Too for burgers
Sheffield's for BBQ (there are other, arguably better BBQ places in the city, but in the specific region of Lakeview, that's the best)
Cheesie's for grilled cheese / late night
Dimo's for pizza / late night
Tac Quick for thai
Ann Sather's is fine for brunch, but may I also suggest Southport Grocery, Kanela, and Chicago Diner.
There are many other tasty places, but those are the best off the top of my head
Agreed on Clarkes (amazed by the enthusiasm here- maybe I haven't been recently enough? Possible) and Tac Quick- that place is a lifesaver. Also down the block Pizza Rustica: mixed bag but their margherita pizza is mindblowingly good.
