So you've found yourself near the Mag Mile or Loop at mealtime. This does not mean you must surrender to Chili's (not that there's anything wrong with that...) or overpriced, underseasoned hotel fare.
Mall food gets a gourmet makeover! Local finds, cheap wine & $5 sushi on Wednesdays. Ask for brown rice & they'll roll while you wait.
Sure it's kinda cheesy/corporate-y, but the food is pretty divine. I love the Macho Salad and the cheeseburger with skinny fries.
Nothing standout, but you could do worse for per- or post-theatre grub. Try the prix fixe or my fave- house made chicken meatballs w/ penne.
It's tough to find upscale Irish food, and this charmer nails it. Great date spot that remains untouristy despite its Michigan Ave location.
Gigantic bowls of ramen from a Top Chef alum trump most any other "food court fare" in my book!
A gourmet grocer I could spend a whole afternoon wandering through. Highlights include freshly rolled sushi, a stellar chocolate selection, and a bevy of cheeses.
Hands down, the best spot to dine on Michigan Ave. Snag a spot outside, let the server guide your wine choice, and save room for soft serve
Loop lunch go-to for fresh 'wiches (love "Blue Pig & Fig") & salads. Grab picnic supplies-think cheese & wine-b4 a show in Millennium Park.
