Boston hound visiting Chicago for first time--but I have just a few hours!

CarrieJ | Aug 14, 2009 12:03 PM

OK, it's my first trip to Chicago--but I only have a few hours to play with (in for a wedding and leaving the next morning)! I've read through the boards, but I have so little time that I have to ask for your help with my specifics. Thanks in advance!

Location--staying at the Hotel Monaco, since there's very little time to explore, closer to the hotel is better, but if venturing out is a must (cab, train?) to get to the best, I'd do it.

I am seeking your recommendations for the following:

--Friday night dinner: we fly into midway @ 8:20, will check into hotel and can then do dinner. It's late, but if we can get a late reservation, we'd be up for fine dining -- steakhouse, etc.

--Saturday breakfast: something on the cheap.

--Saturday lunch: cheap/mid--something all Chicago (deep dish, etc.) but definitely close to the hotel (we have a wedding there @ 1 PM)

--Saturday late night: any nearby spots for a great midnight snack post-wedding?

All suggestions are greatly appreciated!
