I'm looking for a place that uses many modernist techniques in Chicago, as I will be visiting there, and I haven't really gotten a chance to experience modernist cuisine in a restaurant. I don't want anything too expensive (like Alinea). In like the $75 range. Thank you very much!

Not overly Modernist Cuisine, but Otom (Moto's sister restaurant) did a $25 3 course deal on Tuesdays. Not sure if they're still running it but it was fantastic value for money.

I had an incredible meal at Alinea and a great but unequal experience at Moto on my last trip to Chicago. Otom is closed but they now have an Ing restaurant instead and it seem to fit exactly with what you're looking for! For more information you can chech that article.

Bon appetit!

Another benefit to iNG is that it is right around the corner from Aviary -- Alinea and Next's modern cocktail lounge. Get an In the Rocks or the one (the name escapes me) that is served in the "porthole" that changes color as you drink it.
